Colour has medium deep ruby-red core. A bit of age towards the rim. The nose is pure. Displaying a gentle hint of oak. Combining red and dark fruits. With mainly red and black cherry. Good grip on the palate. It is a medium weight, but both tannin and acidity feels quite elevated. There are some spicy notes emerging on the palate, some dried spices, leather. A little hint of oak as well. Slight touch of vanilla. Medium towards long finish. It feels like a wine that is approaching maturity. It is not very old but it has gotten some more nuance and layers from some ageing. Just a hint of dryness on the finish in terms of tannin. But it should continue to develop over the few coming years.

Tasted by the Best Sommelier of the World, Andreas Larsson.
