The colour is showing more evolution here. Leaning towards orange, tawny at the rim. Medium-high intensity. The nose is also showing some evolution, with more dried fruity aromas. I would say more traditional style. There is no indication of oak here, the fruitiness is more prune, dried cherry, dried tomatoes with some spicy notes, hint of leather. Classically dry palate. Still with a slightly austere texture. There is a good presence of tannin, that hasn’t fully integrated yet. Quite youthful and fresh acidity. On the finish more attractive fruit, with juicy red cherry and a certain spiciness. In my mind something that should be put back in the cellar to round off the edges a little bit more.
