    • Nose
      Dark berry fruits. Above all, blackberries and blackcurrants. A sweet-sour and tangy mix with a counterbalance of winter spice. Reminds of good winegrower's mulled wine. Orange peel and clove. In the background something bitter chocolate
    • Taste
      Woody herb. No unpleasant bitterness, as it is immediately replaced by a deep red wine fruit. Again the berries, this time boiled. Warms up the entire mouth suddenly, the young age makes him roll wildly in the mouth back and forth.
    • Finish
      Dry, chocolaty, pleasantly spicy.

    As soon as you open it, you smell the red wine. I expected more but let's see what the bottle develops. Too sharp and bitter for me.

      Nice fruity red wine. Slightly sulphur. But that fits well. He flatters like a Glendronach 12y. Slightly sweet vanilla. Then light fruity candies. Slightly mildew too. Even softer with water. Parmesan.

      Sparkling start and sour. red wine clearly. Spicy. Sourness disappears a bit and it becomes drier. More pleasant with water, more chocolaty, fruity, spicy and a little more sulphur, as well as barley.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Fruity red wine, dry and spicy. Pretty short. Minimal sulphur. Milk chocolate. Salt.
