TASTING NOTES BY LENZ M. MOSER

“New” and “exciting” comes to mind with this new entry to the global market. Beautiful nose halfway from red to blackberry fruit, intense and typical Cabernet elements such as chocolate, leather and a bit of tea – a hue of vanilla comes with a touch of spice à la chinoise. Dense colour, not too dark but strong. The excitement builds with the first sip: luscious and giving rather than demanding, the complexity at this price is stunning, so are the aromatics and the long finish, all in tune with excellent Cabernet Sauvignon. Where does it belong? Maybe halfway new world and halfway old world characteristics have taken the positives from both sides – classic Cabernet with freshness of Bordeaux and beautiful cornucopia of flavours on the other side.”
