Medium to deep colour, rather purple core, with a slightly lighter rim. Attractive nose here. This one is offering some meaty notes, some hints of grilled meat with peppery spicy notes, such as black pepper, clove. With dark fruit, blackberry, dark cherry. Nicely balanced palate here. Rather medium weight but with good flavour intensity. Juicy dark fruit, with spicy and meaty notes. Tannins are rounded, present and contributing to a certain sensation of freshness. I also think the alcohol is pretty balanced and moderate. Not a lot of oak noticeable. Just some slightly roasted hints on the finish. Fresh and juicy. Digest with dark and ample fruit. Good length, quite long persistent. Very good drinkability today actually.
