Dark-red, Ruby. Vital and brilliant, yet little transparent. Intense aromatics right from the start with a lot of Tobacco Leaf, Forrest Floor, Leather and Animalistic Notes. After a while, Fine, Light-Red Berries took over. Black Cherries and Fruit in Rum. Elegant, sophisticated and multi-faceted with Decent Freshness of Mint and Fir Needles. Sweet Vanilla, Cedary Wood, some Bitterness of Feta Cheese, and some Kitchen Vegetables. Fantastic development over three to four hours of drinking with harmony, great complexity and surprise! Integrated Ripe and Dark Fruit on the palate. Berries and Black Cherry. Elegant and even light, but powerful and very present with tons of Dark Chocolate, Leather and (mostly) Tobacco Leaf and Dried Herbs. Hints of Vanilla Sweetness. Healthy structured with a backbone of dusty tannins and fine, alive acidity. Perfect Finish with finest Dark fruit, little Licorice and an intriguing play of sweet and tart. Amazingly harmonious, complex and truly fascinating!
Balance, harmony and finesse in an exceptional wine, where sophistication and elegance meet power and presence. Continuously evolving and, by that, showing detail and endless complexity. Probably best now.
