TASTING NOTE

red wine

Samen Rood 2016

Our rating

7.5 /10
A good wine, with typical aroma and flavour palate of port wine: dried figs and prunes, cherries, red cabbage and licorice combined with some vegetal tones. Be prepared for the characteristic Rondo taste: rustic and rural. Given the unfamiliarity of this grape outside the Netherlands, it is a not well-known taste that one must learn to know and appreciate.

A dry wine, with medium alcohol and acidity and medium – tannins. The wine is medium – bodied with a medium + flavour intensity. We taste dried, baked fruits, licorice and a bit of an undefinable vegetable flavour.

A good wine which is now ready to drink. Be prepared for the characteristic Rondo taste: rustic and rural. Given the unfamiliarity of this grape outside the Netherlands, it is a not well-known smell and taste that one must learn to know and appreciate.
