Very inky colour, completely impenetrable, appearing very youthful. Also the nose is very young here, we have a high level of ripeness, but still a bit discreet in terms of aroma. Very inky dark fruit here, again I would talk about dark cherry, dark plum, blackberry. Oak is not really noticeable. It’s very concentrated on the palate, I would call it a quite massive structure, intense, with layers of dark fruit. I think the tannins are already ripe, the oak is not really noticeable on the palate. It has a very high concentration and a very long finish as well. I think this is a very ambitious wine that will develop extremely well, the only thing we miss today is aromatic complexity and roundness, and everything else will come with age. Very nice candidate, put it back in your cellar.
