Critic Reviews:
'This is an exciting wine and the first thing that strikes me is the dark fruit, the silky structure, the underlying power and the beautiful floral notes including violet. The wine feels a little easy at first but soon the flavors presents themselves, here are dark cherries, sloe (blackthorn) and hint of blackcurrant. The wine is dense, has a long finish and nice underlying acidity. In the aftertaste herbs, dried flowers, coffee and licorice comes through. Power and smoothness together with elegance transcends into an interesting, complex and very good wine - I want to try more wines of this grape! A suggestion is not to drink it too cold, it's when it it gets a little higher temperature (say about 17-18 degrees) it really comes to life.' Birger Vejrum (Denmark)
