Tasting notes, by Frank Smulders MW: Deeply ruby colored with a nose showing some development in its fruit aromas as well as the influence of oak. Sweet spices like vanilla, coconut and cinnamon are very present on the palate, as well as black and red cherries and a peppery and salty note. Ageing notes like forest floor and dried tobacco leaves, butterscotch chocolate. The oak tannins provide grip in the finish, in which the minerality plays an important role too.”
