It reveals notes of blackberry, crushed blackcurrant and small notes of violet, strawberry associated with fine touches of raspberry associated with hints of small acidulous/fresh red berries as well as fine hints of tonka bean and tobacco. The mouth is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a juicy/finely acidulous frame as well as a good definition and tension. In the mouth this wine expresses nots of juicy/ripe red berries, ripe/juicy raspberry and small notes of blackcurrant associated with fine touches of fresh violet as well as very fine hints of crunchy strawberry. Good length. Tannins are well-built. A good persistence with a very discreet hint of dry almond.
