    Winemaker's Notes:

    COLOR: Bright and deep ruby garnet with purple shades.

    NOSE: Expressive and lively with floral notes, fresh and spicy red fruits such as raspberries, wild plums and blackberries above a background of humus, wild mushrooms and fresh aromatic herbs. The oak ageing shows slight tones of toasted bread crust and then, rise minty black chocolate and new leather notes.

    PALATE: The substance is bright and juicy, balanced between volume and elegance, reproducing all the aromas through a fresh sensation. The well polished and yet integrated tannins bring a vigorous touch to the structure and go on until a floral and spicy finish, full of red fruits and spring accents.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Quite minty, but fleshy and balanced, displaying good dark currant and mulled plum fruit backed by a broad, toast- and loam-filled finish. Drink now.

    Vivid ruby. Powerful aromas of cherry, dried flowers, licorice and mint, plus a touch of woodsmoke. Then broad and creamy on the palate, offering gently sweet red berry and cherry flavors and slow-mounting spiciness. The finish shows subtle sweetness and good tannic grip; this is still quite youthful but shows good promise.
