The nose is fruity and offers a fine concentration and structure. It reveals notes of wild cassis, small berries and small notes of violet, strawberry associated with fine touches of graphite, mocha and very discreet hints of mild tobacco/sweet spices. The mouth is well-balanced and offers juiciness and a small freshness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of black cherry, Boysenberry and small notes of cassis associated with fine touches of violet, iris, cornflower and hints of graphite as well as touches of Cuben pepper. Tannins are well-built and structuring.
