The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a slight acid frame, suavity as well as a good structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cooked cassis, blackberry and small notes of violet, purple plum associated with small touches of very ripe red fruits, licorice, nutmeg, spices, a touch of black pepper as well as very discreet hints of local vegetation / Tarweed and dark chocolate.
