Quite dark colour here, dark ruby with a youthful blue-purple hue. Fresh nose displaying some gentle hints of wood here. A touch of vanilla, a touch of butterscotch, blending red and dark berries, sweet plum. Good grip on the palate. Quite full here, with a rather high level of extract. Rather well-balanced with the fruitiness there. Still youthful with the sensation of freshly crushed fruit, with mainly black plum and cassis. Finish is quite on the long side. But still a bit youthful, with a slight tannic presence and youthful acidity. A slight hint of herbal spiciness on the finish as well. A finely crafted wine that should certainly develop more complexity over four to six years and should keep for up to ten. Should be drinkable within the coming year.
