Editor note: Translate to English Ziemlich fester, holzwürziger, etwas nussiger und tabakiger Duft nach reifen, teils angetrockneten und eingemachten schwarzen Beeren mit gewürzigen und zedrigen Aromen, etwas Trockenkräutern, getrockneten Pilzen und erdigen Noten. Sehr kräftig im Mund, hochreife, leicht kompottige Frucht mit süßlicher Holzwürze, schokoladig am Gaumen, etwas Kaffeesatz und Lebkuchenwürze, mürb-sandiges Tannin, nachhaltig und warm am Gaumen, viel Fett, aber auch etwas Biss, kühlende Mineralik und Kräuternuancen im Hintergrund, ein wenig Eiskonfekt, gewisse Tiefe, sehr guter Abgang.
