Winemaker's Notes

Good deep ruby-red. Expressive aromas of dark raspberry, smoked meat, black olive, iron, smoke and tobacco. Lush, broad and sweet, with a deep smoky, meaty sweetness and outstanding palate coverage. For all its breadth and silkiness, there's no shortage of energy and definition. Finishes impressively long, with chewy, sweet tannins that dust the front teeth.

Dense, old vine flavors of cassis and black fruit offset by refined mineral, liquorice and tobacco notes lead into this wine's layered, complex palate which is supported by a firm, focused backbone of sweet, ripe tannins and an elegant, balanced acidity on the extended finish.

    드라이하지만 시트러스, 박하향이 초기에 잔에 가득함 약간 산미가 도드러워서인지 아니면 디캔팅을 안해서 그런지 아직 풀리지 않은 느낌 1시간이 지나도 강한 산미가 유지되면서 본연의 모습을 안들어냄 약간 아쉬움
