The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas which start with aromas of toasted wood followed by aromas of black cherry, raspberry, blueberry, plum and violet as well as aromas of vanilla, licorice and hints of tobacco and chocolate. In the mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a pleasing tannic attack with a pleasing crispness however well balanced by alcohol, intense flavors and good body.
