Very youthful example here impenetrable, black-purple colour. Intense nose with a lot of fresh fruit. Blackcurrant with blackberry, dark plum. A mild spiciness and also some floral hints of violet. Very intense and dense palate as well. Appearing very youthful with plenty of extract. I think these are really finely distributed tannins. So plenty of them, but quite grainy already at this stage. Inky fruit such as freshly crushed blackcurrant, plum and blackberry. Nice mouthfeel with attractive fruit. Fresh and vibrant acidity as well. Long and quite fleshy finish. I wine that should certainly develop more nuance and layers over the coming four to six years. Keep longer than that. It should be drinkable within the near future thanks to the ripe tannins and that attractive dark fruit.
