Tasting notes, by Frank Smulders MW: “Deep colored and bright, the nose combines ripe black fruit like cherry and blackberry with delicate hints of oak: a touch of vanilla, lightly smoky. In the mouth the oak becomes more present, adding a pleasant touch of tannins and further complexity. The ripe fruit remains, the spicy character increases. Prunes and black plums, black cherry, vanilla, pepper, clove, slightly earthy even with a rather long, warming finish, pleasantly show up and supported by a mineral sensation on the tongue.”
