our notes are based on WSET Systematic approach to tasting:
clear bright with medium intensity ruby at core with purple reflections, breaking at rim and many legs on the sides of the bowl
clean, youthful, medium (+) intensity & complex aromas of dark forest fruits, hints of leather & tobbaco, smokee, savoury and mouthwatering
dry, medium (-) acidity, medium (-) & ripe tannin, medium (+) alcohol level, medium body, medium (+) intensity & complexity of flavours: as nose, with hints of fresh red fruits. silky on the palate with a medium lenght and peppery finish
a good wine, complexity, lenght, texture that makes it pleasant to drink on its own or with food. each sip is lingering long enough leaving a nice mouthering finish to invite the drinker for more.
