Tasting Notes

Tasting from 12.09.2022: Anne Krebiehl

Sumptuous red fruit - think ripest red cherry, juicy plum - come with a notion of tar and a sprinkle of white pepper on the nose. The palate is dense, intense, elegant with finest, smoothest, silkiest tannins that resemble elastic velvet. This is sinuous and while there is richness, it is absolutely contoured with elegance. It is on the long finish that this white pepper glistens like crystals of snow in the sun. Beautiful.
