Red wine with a medium towards deep ruby-red core, still appearing rather youthful. Quite ripe nose, indicating sweet fruit; sweet red berries like strawberry, red cherry, with some hints of wood, a hint of vanilla. Good gripe on the palate, a bit more then medium weight, but still a quite rounded mouthfeel. Polished texture there, with soft tannin more on that sweet plush fruit; such as red berries and plum. Fine spiciness. Rather long finish. Nice drinkability already today. A fine combination of that sweet fruit backed up by that nice acidity as well, so enjoyable drinking today, but definitely with a potential for further development.

Tasted by the Best Sommelier of the World, Andreas Larsson.
