In the mouth has very good correspondence to the nose, a slightly tannic attack and pleasing smoothness, however well balanced by alcohol, full body, intense flavors, good tannins, very agreeable. The finish is very persistent with long and good flavors of black cherry, plum and black currant. A great and very well made wine.
