tasting notes
The Veenwouden Classic 2010 has dense, saturated purple colour with aromatic offerings of violet, cigar box, chocolate and crushed dark mulberry. This is followed on the palate by cassis and a hint of espresso roast. This full-bodied wine exhibits terrific extract with ripe tannins, exquisite balance and a long subtle velvety finish.
