Red wine with a fairly dense core, dark ruby with some purple hints. Pure nose showing off some violet notes, dark berries, with plum; quite mild spiciness. Quite good density on the palate, nice level of extraction, we have finely grainy tannins, adding freshness, some spicy and peppery notes with those dark fruity flavours. Quite attractive and already nicely rounded texture. Not really any influence of new oak. Ripe fruit, but without any noticeable alcohol. Good length, good density of fruit on the finish; spicy dark fruity. With a fine potential, but very accessible right now.
