Intense, vivid ruby red color with aromas of red berries, maraschino cherry and liquorice. The aromas repeat on the palate with more hints of liquorice and tobacco. Tannins are firm and a fruit is refreshed by a lively acidity that leads to a long, persistent finish.
"Aromas of burnt orange peel and cherry with hints of dried bark and mahogany. Full-bodied and very tight and dense, with a beautiful fruit, tannin and acid balance. Finesse and strength. Best wine from here for ages. Needs until 2018 to show its true quality." (JS96)
