Red wine with a very intense and inky colour, opaque centre indicating a slight age at the rim. Aromatically it is also in a quite youthful phase right now I would say. I get some hints of roasted oak, a then there is a wealth of dark bright fruit there, plum, cassis, blackberry. Still rather on that youthful and primary fruit, not with any other indication of age actually. Really muscular on the palate. High density here, high extract in terms of tannin. Still appearing youthful, however, ripe without any greenness, but there is still a rather high level of extraction here. Which I think it gives it a good backbone to that quite lush and opulent fruit. It is certainly persistent on the finish, it keeps lingering. I think this is a wine that is still under evolution, it will develop far more complexity with more age. But it certainly has a structure and potential to go on for a long time. So very attractive here, with dark juicy fruit, with some notes of chocolate and liquorice. Dense, and I should say present, but ripe tannin. Yeah, very good potential here.
