Trinkreife: 2004 to 2030
Pungent, punchy stuff, with a verdant edge to the black fruit, lots of black olive and sappiness, and a solid cedary oak and Sandalwood note. The palate has masses of fruit – so much sweetness here, so much fresh bursting blackcurrant. A little lighter in style for sure, the tannins perhaps a touch underpowered, but the clarity of the acidity, bolstering oak and creaminess is lovely, finishing on sweet fruit, spices and coffee. A touch short perhaps, but a deliciously juicy and fruit-packed core to this.
