Review

The abundance of primary, appealing fruit flavors will captivate your attention at the first smell. It is followed by theforest blackberries, red currants and the black cherry blossoms are settled, bevelled with fully developed and completely fragrant oak scents, which appeal to warm toast and sweet, spicy notes. An emphasized fruity freshness dominates the palate, where wine also reveals its fine, matured tannins. All together, it merges into a moderately long, soft and rounded final taste.
