About the wine

Tasting notes

Outstanding – “An exuberantly spicy dark berry liqueur suffused nose is also quite floral. The sleek, intense and beautifully delineated medium-bodied flavors exude a subtle minerality on the youthfully austere, punchy and well-balanced finale. This needs to add a bit of depth to merit the top end of my range but it has the potential” – 90-93 – Burghound
