Intense colour here deep ruby-red core, but nothing really blue or purple. So it is starting to fade a little bit at the rim, indicating a certain evolution. Quite classic nose here with dark fruity aromas, cassis, plum, with some herbal notes as well. Some leafy notes like bay leaf, tobacco, quite laid-back oak, just a hint of vanilla. Dense structure here, with nice dark fruit. Still appearing a bit youthful in terms of tannins. There is plenty of extract here, but good freshness, good balance. The tannins are not really hard, just present. I like those slightly spicy and herbal notes, like sage, bay leaf, mint. The wine has got a good length, it keeps lingering. So I would say good material, still a bit youthful in terms of the texture, but should be good material to further cellar.
