Our oenologists' opinion
Its garnet color offers an open and fruity nose, with notes of wild strawberries and pomegranate. On the palate, this wine presents an attack on soft and round tannins. Tasty and round 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.
Do you know ?
The name "Black horse" comes from an old legend that this fine, elegant creature would harvest the vineyard itself.
