Cabernet Merlot Learn Riserva - 2015 - Winery Glassierhof - Stefan Vaja
The colour: dark ruby. A smell of raspberries and strawberries, a grace of blackberries. A complicated and, nevertheless, harmonious body, severity and acid in the unison, hard and concentrated. A velvety, persistent departure.
Color: intensive ruby to garnet red. Smell: The Pinot Noir presents itself as a multifaceted wine on the nose, where the delicate primary fruit aromas of wild strawberries and blackberries blend with restrained aromas of tobacco and flint, and notes of white field mushrooms. Taste: Well balanced with a mineral elegance that makes it dance on the palate. This red wine has a long and exciting finish.
The colour is impressively deep, almost black tinged with violet; open on the nose with concentrated aromas of violets, blackberries and black cherries, all nicely meshed with savoury flavours, coffee and dark chocolate. A powerful and supple wine with assertive, youthful tannins and superb length.
Medium intense ruby colour with a garnet shimmer. Still somewhat closed, clean uplifted varietal aroma: impressions of red berry fruit, cherries along with oak spice (white pepper, cinnamon). Quite pronounced flavour, medium bodied. Fresh finish with good length and a presence of spicy tannin. Elegant style.
IUGUM (iou-gum) is a made up name. It means "yoke" in Latin. A yoke is that wooden piece with hitched oxen into pairs, but the word "Iugum" is also used in very early agricultural texts in reference to tines being trained on a support.
