Medium deep ruby-red colour. Still with a slight youthful hint of purple at the core. Modern nose here, with some roasted oak. Quite ripe fruit. Mostly dark plum, dark cherry. Slight hint of leather, dried spices. Good grip on the palate. Quite concentrated fruit. Good density of fruit, good weight. I would say the texture is already fairly rounded. There is tannic grip but well-integrated right now. Still a quite youthful and fresh acidity. Oak feels less marked on the palate than on the nose. There are some hints of roasted coffee bean, hint of vanilla on the finish. Quite long and substantial finish. I would say, a modern style wine. That offers pleasure already, but it should easily have five to eight year, if not more potential for development.
