Red wine with a very dense core here, blue-black centre. Fresh nose; good purity of fruit here, we have some hints of mint, some notes of green pepper, with plum and red berry fruit. The palate is still youthful, quite restrained, with a clear presence of youthful tannin, a quite high acidity here but the fruit is quite elegant and rounded with sweet red berry fruits and plum, with some of that herbal spiciness, a slight hint of mint; no evident oak really. I would call it a classic medium weight, with fairly good length, good purity of fruit, and turned-down oak. Just another example that would need to shed that youthful astringency of the tannins.
