The typical deep, dark sweetness of a Ruby Port rises immediately from the glass, carried by the 60% vol., but in no way unpleasantly noticeable (impressive). A creamy vanilla sweet mixes with the red fruit compote and a Nussigkeit. The typical for such Weinreifungen (for me) note of wet, slightly acidic wood is also there.
With water: Slightly less dominant, but not many new flavors - except for a slight toasty touch
here with plenty of steam, although still pure drinkable. Dark plums and black cherries, light acidity of blackberries is added. Black coffee.
With water: tolerates a lot. The thick fruity sweetness remains, now comes through honey and the quite strong bitterness flares off a bit. With fantasy you can feel a slightly smoky breeze wafting through your mouth.
dry. Dark chocolate, far beyond the 70% cocoa content. Not necessarily long-lasting, but by nature extremely warming.
