Red wine with a medium deep ruby colour, fairly youthful appearance still. Fresh nose still on the young side with hints of dark berries, plum, a hint of wood. Medium weight; in this case I would talk about a classic structure. No evident oak really. High acidity but rounded tannin with juicy red plum, red berry fruit, a hint of herbal spiciness on the finish. Quite light but well-balanced today; it’s still youthful and could probably gain in terms of roundness and texture. Medium towards long finish.
