wein.plus rating: Excellent (90 WP)
Last reviewed: 14 August, 2019
Editor note: Light smoky notes on the nose, black berries and cherries, dried vegetal and herbaceous notes, very delicate meaty traces, floral notes and some peppery spice. Clear, firm, tart, juicy, dark fruit on the palate, light smoky, toasted oak, some dried herbs, trace of peppery spice, fairly prominent and fairly fine tannins, light acid bite, good substance and persistence, some depth, medium body, but also polished, compact structure, still young, earthy and mineral traces in the background, very good, firm finish.
Best to drink: 2020-2027+
