Low colour intensity here, a light ruby core and tawny towards the rim, indicating a certain evolution. Fine nose. Combining some earthy mineral notes, with sweet red fruit. Red berries, like wild raspberry and quite a discreet spiciness there. Dried spices like a hint of vanilla, pepper and clove. The palate has a good grip, it still appears much younger on the palate than on the nose. So sour red berries like cranberry, red cherry with that mild spiciness. There is a slight hint of oak in the background, but quite discreetly so. Good level of freshness. It is a medium weight example, with that elegant red fruit, and fine spiciness. Good length quite persistent. However, it appears a bit young on the finish. It is certainly a high quality of wine that should continue to develop and gain complexity and harmony over the years.
