Lovely and sophisticated wine entering golden age. I mean, it surely has aging potential, but it's so damn good just now. Expressive bouquet: oil paint, ripe cherry, earth, red flowers. Well balanced, medium-bodied with good volume and long aftertaste. Good value.

Tasted as part of Na Uzbičči event.
