Red wine with a medium towards deep ruby-red colour. Still youthful on the nose, fresh with a good emphasis on fruit here, combining red and dark fruits with some gently spicy notes, a hint of licorice, a discreet touch of wood. Palate has a medium weight, still with a youthful freshness and a youthful appearance. The tannins are rather integrated already. We have quite high acidity, giving a lift to that rather red fruity character, with plum and wild berry notes. Just a gentle hint of wood here. Obviously it feels like a slightly lighter example from a lighter vintage, but it’s well-balanced in this quite delicate style, offering a quite good drinkability already. Well-balanced and lighter-bodied, but still has a good length with that juicy red fruit on the finish.
