Red wine, starting to develop because the colour on the rim is really ruby towards tawny; the core as well is medium-ruby. The nose is showing evolution here, I get more spicy woody notes like cedar wood, tobacco, spice box, with sweet plum and some red berry notes. Palate has a classic structure; it’s medium weight, with quite high extraction here. We still have a tannic grip on the mid-palate with sour red cherry, some notes of cranberry, with spicy leathery notes. It’s pretty intense on the finish, it’s a medium towards long finish, still with that tannic presence. I would say this is a wine that has a certain aromatic complexity and development; I think flavourwise it would still need to round off the edges, to let the tannins soften for another one to two years in the cellar.
