Red wine with a slightly developed colour, medium-deep ruby-red with a slightly lighter rim. The nose has got some evolution, quite harmonious right now with some wood, tobacco, plum, and red currant. Quite classic palate, with medium weight and high acidity, but integrated tannin. Some spicy notes, cedar wood, tobacco, mild spices. Not a lot of new oak. Feels more like the classic Cabernet-Merlot style, in a traditional style with good levels of freshness and that curranty plummy fruit. Medium weight, and a medium towards long finish. Good drinkability now, but could be aged for another few years in a good cellar.

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