92 Points Falstaff
Deep dark ruby garnet, violet reflexes, delicate brightening. With a fine nougat touch backed black berry fruit, delicately licorice, subtle Edelholztouch, spicy nuances. Powerful, juicy heart cherry fruit, delicate to Cassis, present, still somewhat demanding tannins, a little astringent in the finish, still needs some time.
Pairing : Decantation is worthwhile! To steaks, lamb, game, pasta dishes.
