nice nose of dark berries, taste especially of black berries. medium body and okay finish until in the end the tannins are very metallic. this metallic after taste got better after 1-2hours. not quite convinced but still good.
quite ordinary wine. when opening it was a little closed and it smelled smokey and of berries. thought it would gain by letting it breath. it gained some after 1h, put started to desintegrate soon after. alright wine, nice taste of berries, a little leather. nice acidity and tannins but not much body.
