This is a tasting note according to WSET Diploma Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine. The game is easy: guess the wine in my glass, and the person closest to the right wine will get a bottle of wine from me! Don’t get scared, just play along. Only guesses as comments on this Blog, will count.
Appearance: Bright, medium (-), garnet, with red core. Small legs.
Nose: Clean, medium, with developing notes. Notes of red cherries, fresh plums, leather and dry wood. Herbaceous notes of blackcurrant leaf and fresh basil.
Palate: Dry, medium (+) acidity, medium (+) coarse tannins, medium alcohol, medium body, medium (+) intensity. Notes in balance with the nose: red cherries, some raisins. Oak flavours, toast, cedar. Good balance between acidity, sweetness in the fruit and the flavour intensity. Medium (+) length.
Very good quality, with nice concentration. Can drink now, but will develop further over the next 5 – 10 years.
