Dark and inky core, still very youthful and dense colour, but a slightly lighter rim. Quite intense nose. Still on the youthful side with dark, inky fruit. Black plum, dark cherry, cassis, a slight hint of leather and some liquorice and anise seed in terms of spiciness. Palate is very dense. Plenty of weight and plenty of extract. Still appearing a bit youthful on the palate, with young and vigorous tannin. Fresh acidity and layers of juicy and dark fruit. Fine spiciness on the palate, with those hints of anise seed, some clove. Quite laid back oak. Rather long finish, still a bit tight on the aftertaste but it should doubtlessly have the potential to develop more complexity and softness with age.
