About wine: A wine of dark ruby red, almost black colour. On the nose the scents of red fruits can be detected: thanks to the exceptional vintage black currant dominates, but there is also an indication of intoxicating dried plums, violet blossoms, herbal spices, graphite, and leather. On the palate there is a sense of maturity and solemnity, but the youthful playfulness has not yet gone away. Brda contributed to the taste of black cherries, hard-fleshed cherries, plum jams, aromas from the home garden (peppermint, marjoram), while flirting with the rest of the world resulted in a graphite and tobacco aroma. Tannins are refined and together with the acid they balance a relatively high alcoholic strength. The aftertaste leaves the palate clean, with a pleasant memory of a wide range of sensory experiences.
