Bright red hue. The wine releases aromas of wild berries with spicy notes on the nose. Ripe plums can also be detected. Straightforward on the palate, full of fruit, yet nevertheless fresh with a touch of citrus ... on entry, the wine is not as mature as the nose would suggest! Cedar and juniper scents give this wine an elegant, understated patina. A generous wine with good ageing potential.
