Some evolution here, medium-bodied ruby. Floral nose, there’s a lot of sweet fruit there, crushed berries, almost with a hint of apricot or yellow plum, some spicy notes and a floral hint. Nicely balanced palate, quite dense texture with youthful but not harsh tannin. It offers sweet fruit, with a mixture of those almost yellow fruits like apricots, and those dark berries. Mild spices, and still a fairly marked acidity, but the oak is already well concealed. Medium long finish, with a mild spiciness, attractive fruit. Could develop for a few more years and probably the tannins could be a bit more integrated if you come back to this in one or two years.

Tasted by the Best Sommelier of the World, Andreas Larsson.
