Red wine with a very intense core here, dark purple, almost opaque. It feels pretty youthful on the nose, it’s more with primary fruit, slightly unresolved with a mixture of red and dark berries, some notes of plum, no evident oak really, and a gentle spiciness. Palate is quite full, yet it has a rather soft extraction with some gently peppery notes. Very juicy fruit here, it’s a quite generous palate here with sweet plum, those spicy notes, sweet berries, slightly peppery finish. Not too bad in terms of length, medium towards long I would say. Still youthful but I think this is a style that is very pleasurable to enjoy in its very youth.
