Provningsanteckningar: Lätt utvecklad smak med stort cabbigt uttryck. Smaken är närmast fransk och känns på det hela taget så elegant en jänkare kan bli. Svarta vin bär såklart, mixat med björnbärspaj, kryddor, kokos och rostad ek. Ett kanonvin även om vi inte riktigt känner oss helt vana vid eller bekväma med den kraftiga ekbehandlingen.
