Interesting bouquet of cranberry, sour cherry, violets with well integrated VA. After decanting it becomes more approachable and fruity. It is still green on the palate, so it would benefit from ageing.
Tasted as part of Na Uzbičči event.

Tasting again after a year. And I like it even more than before. Beautiful bouquet with notes of cherry, cranberry, flowers (violets?), earth, and subtle traces of VA. Medium body, fresh, with grippy tannin. But overall, it’s elegant and sophisticated. Definitely more balanced than a year before.
