Complex, pretty wine. Has some barnyard funk on the nose, with dried flowers, currants and a hint of green in the glass. Gritty tannins, mouth watering acidity.

Cranberry Flintstone Vitamins on the nose. Bright red cherry juice with an unconcentrated cranberry finish and dusty tannins. A little VA but well-integrated. Good stuff, especially at this price point.

Musky and rocky on the nose with hints of wet stone and wet wool, like a cellar. Tannic and forceful up front but yielding to dried strawberry, green bell pepper, and balanced out beautifully by surprisingly complex hints of fresh flowers and pink peppercorn. Medium minus alcohol.

Аромат красных косточковых плодов, перечный, цветочный, немного зелёный и землистый, очень приятный. Достаточно концентрированное, с хорошей кислотностью и задиристыми танинами, алкоголь не выступает. Очень гастрономично. Чудесное вино за свои деньги. 16,5/20
