The nose is powerful, fruity and offers a small intensity and a fine grain. It reveals notes wild fresh cassis, wild raspberry and small notes of wild blackberry associated with fine touches of small wild berries as well as fine hints of violet/iris as well as fine hints of Cuben pepper and a very discreet hint of dry tobacco leaf. The mouth is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers freshness, a good definition, gourmandize, a beautiful definition as well as suavity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cassis, ripe black cherry and small notes of fleshy/juicy raspberry associated with small touches of violet, tobacco leaf as well as discreet hints of cocoa/coffee. Tannins are structuring but a bit dry.
