Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour, frank nose of red pepper, blackcurrant syrup and slight smokey notes. In the mouth, nice balance on a mediu, body, frank, small finesse, frank character on spices, notes of cocoa, roasted and smokey notes with present but already quite soft tannins. Frank and straightforward finish.
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.
