An intense and complex nose of black fruit followed by toasty spicy notes. The palate is elegant and balanced with fine rounded tannins. The wine is still young at the time of writing in June 2015. The balance and finesse makes it very drinkable already now but it will grow in complexity with ageing.

Aromas of blueberry, fresh flower and walnut follow through to a full body, with super integrated tannins and a long, refined finish. Lovely, crafted red with class. This is a blend of cabernet franc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Better in 2019.

The 2012 Biserno is a seriously beautiful wine that is going to need time to fully open up. Mocha, plum, espresso and grilled herbs are some of the signatures, but the 2012 is a baby and not fully expressive at this early stage. Dark, opulent and large-scaled in conception, the Biserno has a lot to offer. Hints of dark red cherry, raspberry jam, spices and torrefaction blossom on an intense finish supported by suave, polished tannins. The Cabernet Franc is particularly expressive here.

Coconut, black currant, toasted oak and grilled bell pepper lead the nose on this blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The polished, full-bodied palate offers dried black cherry, raspberry, licorice and espresso framed in silky tannins.
