Red

Raspberry red of medium intensity, purple rim. Nose opens with a fine cherry fragrance, and with more air comes more fruit, cassis, not pungent, but in a delightfully restrained way. Obviously, Klaus Peter has used barriques, but in such a subtle way that you have to sniff hard to detect a mere hint of cigar box. The palate confirms that the oak has been toasted most gently, leaving the taste buds to concentrate on wonderfully pure fruit. Tannins are firm but not furry, and their subtle bitter expression works in perfect harmony with an animating acidity. Fine spices and a delicate salty tang add value to a long finish.
