3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Absolutely no head on that one. Ripe cherries and little bit of remover in the nose, not agressing at all though. Attack by the tartric acidity but the fruit quickly takes it place in the mouth. Cherry, little bit of wood, berries. It finishes just before a little woody bitterness would like to start.
