The nose shows sweet plum, cherry and strawberry notes on the nose with abundant aniseed aromas reflected on the palate. The bold, fruit driven palate is supported by cedar and vanillin oak characters. The fine silky tannins add to the wine’s complexity and long lingering, sweet flavors on the finish.
Nice full body. a little fruity. some slight acidity on the finish, diminishing with more oxygen. nice pairing with lamb chops in demi-glace.
quite good, surprisingly
fruity nice nose spicy
