Very youthful appearance here, dark blue, inky core. High colour intensity. There are quite a wealth of aromas there. It starts out showing off a lot of ripeness. It leans in the direction of really black inky fruit such as blackberry, cassis, dark plum, also with some floral notes like violet. There is also a mineral presence, like some hints of earth and crushed rocks. No noticeable oak really. Much more on the emphasis of this ripe and lushes fruit. Very good grip on the palate. Really mouth-filling, very dense, very concentrated. I still find this being a very youthful wine. I must say it is pretty delicious. We still have a presence of tannin and extract, but they are nicely rounded and well embedded in this anxious fruit. What I like here is we really have a high ripeness, inky dark berries, cassis and juicy blackberry. It is all underlined by a very bright acidity and that mineral sensation. Very long finish. Really layered very juicy, very long finish. Persistent with a lot of fine spiciness going on. Excellent balance. Despite this richness and concentration, this is doubtlessly a very youthful wine. I could drink it now but I would probably prefer to keep it for a few more years, as it will gain more complexity, harmony and roundness, within the coming years. Bloody tempting example.
