Deep purple colour with some legs. It gives on nose pronounced aromas of violet, blackcurrant, ripe plum, vanilla, licorice with trace of earth. Very aromatic. Dry with full body, medium alcohol and acidity, ripe and fine-grained tannin with strong flavours of black fruit, trace of vanilla and spice. Long length with black cherry finish. Sure it will improve over time but the load of fruit can be revealed during tasting. (93)
