Quite dense and youthful colour, with a black-purple tinge. Fine nose, with quite elegant wood, some roasted coffee, pure notes of violet, cassis. Very dense and concentrated palate. Good material there, layers of that ripe inky fruit, like blackcurrant, black berry. Really finely grained tannin. There’s a slight hint of butterscotch and vanilla on the palate, but the oak is quite concealed by that wealth of dark fruit. Very digest as well, with a great sense of freshness thanks to those finely grained tannins. Luscious dark fruit, very long finish. This is still a very youthful wine, I find it quite easy to taste, it offers everything right now. Of course this is a wine that will gain complexity and roundness from further aging, but really excellent and promising stuff.
