Red wine with a medium towards deep ruby-red colour. Fine nose quite layered there, mixing both red and dark fruit. Mild spiciness there, some notes of liquorice, plum, pepper, with a presence of cassis and dark plum. Fine oak in the background, adding just a hint of vanilla. Very nicely balanced palate. I think this is a wine that is combining concentration, with a subtly texture. Very finely grained tannins there, powdery. Also contributing to the freshness, the acidity is there as well. So I think it has a very nice mouthfeel, excellent drinkability there, with layers of beautiful, dark fruit. Finely spicy with well integrated oak. It is certainly a ripe style from a warm climate. But I think it is made in a slightly more restrained style. It is not really massive or bold, it rather keeps the medium body frame. It has a fine flavour intensity and a very long finish. Already I would say it is a complex wine that will certainly gain a lot more from further cellaring.
