Red wine with a medium intense ruby-red nuance, colour is starting to fade on the rim. The nose shows some evolution, leaning a bit more towards dried fruit. Like dark plum, slight hint of cassis, bright cherry with a slight herbal spiciness. Some notes of manuka honey, sage and a discreet woody touch. The palate has medium weight, a bit more than medium weight. Quite high density of fruit. There is still a tannic presence there, but I feel like the wine has gotten some evolution. The fruit is started to round off and become a bit sweeter. Nice herbal spiciness. Good mix of red and dark berries. Balanced acidity and the wood is not really noticeable on the palate. Medium towards long finish. Still with a slightly dried sensation from the tannin. Overall a good balance and drinkability.
