Quite dense colour, still youthful with a purple hue. Fine nose here. Gentle hint of new oak. Lot of ripe, dark berry fruit, with cassis, plum and cherry. Mild spiciness as well. Good grip on the palate. I really like this combination of ripe and juicy dark fruit. There is a good brightness on the palate here, fresh acidity and a good presence of minerality as well. Grainy tannin, just a hint of roasted oak. Fine spicy notes and a very long and vibrant finish. A fine wine indeed. It just appears a bit young today. Obviously with this material it should continue to develop for at least ten years depending on what style you like but really good potential here.
