2005 M KLIPSUN
The dynamic aromas of the M 2005 lead with brooding dark fruits giving way to rose petal and violet. The plush mouthfeel is a once velvety and chewy with structure to spare. The range of flavor from black currants to black cherries to blackberries also features subtle notes of espresso and minerality.
