Sean Wallner - WSET II

Cherry, red licorice, some game and botanical herbs. Soft on the palate, bursting fresh red fruits, cherry, plum, graphite and subtle coffee notes. Such an incredible wine!

Earthy minerality, sour cherry, just a little unbalanced.

Pulled this bad boy out of the cellar for a night with the broads .... straight up fruity nose... black berry plum spice. On the front palate dark cherry black berry forest fire... spice on the back end. Nice mouthfeel up front but turns watery on the down hill. And unfortunately a rather short finish. All in all a quite enjoyable effort but lacking in WOW factor..
