Deep, dark and thick colour with intensely fruity nose with cherries, forest fruits and baked raisin in balance with the characters of vanilla, dried fruits and chocolate that comes from the long aging process in the oak barrels.

Some toasted scents adds depth. On the palate the tannin structure is completely different to the Anemos. Also the acidity reveals the higher altitude fruit. Dark berries, compost, leather and tobacco. Some vanilla. Elegant, quite long finish. The slightly dry tannin feel is first evident…
