This wine won a GOLD medal in 13th Berlin wine competition in 2009. I was quite surprised when I opened it, as I expected aromas typical of aged wines (wood and animal notes), but instead I was overwhelmed by light fruit scents. All in all, red currant dominates the palate followed by scents of almond, rose, pine and vanilla. This nicely integrated wine needs almost an hour to open up; is good to drink now and yet it still has an aging potential of 5 to 10 years, has refined tannins and a medium finish. My impression: NICE. Tasted Feb/10.
