Purple with a dark cherry-red rim, dense tears. Charming aroma spectrum of black cherries, sour cherry cake, chocolate chips, touch of vanilla, sun-ripened blackberries, rosewood slightly toasted, juniper and blackthorn faintly perceptible. Dry, powerfully structured, with substantial yet smooth tannins which appear as if dipped into cherry-chocolate. Characteristic and inviting.

Long finish with a promising ageing potential.
