Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark garnet color offers a pretty nose on red and black fruits with fresh mint peak, flowers and violet. As for the taste, this wine shows character ,freshness, finesse and has a nice envelope. It is full, meaty, dense, nervous and vigorous with a mineral edge. Its long finish is clean, tight and coated on tight tannins, delicate and velvety as well as silky. Beautiful wine.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
