Slightly developed colour here ruby-red nuance, slightly lighter rim. Fresh nose with some herbal spiciness. Some notes of pepper, aromatic herbs, plum and cassis. Quite traditional style. Palate has medium weight, with a high extract still quite firm, firm tannin and elevated acidity. With flavours of red berries, plum, cassis. There is not a lot of oak there. It has a good length, it keeps lingering for a while. I would call this balanced in a traditional style. However the tannins are still present and I think it would need just a little bit more time to round off the edges.
