Quite youthful appearance here. Very opaque core. Intense nose with high ripeness. Quite modern style, underlined by some new oak. Mostly dark fruit; like blackberry, dark plum, some peppery and spicy notes. High concentration, but with a quite gentle extraction. There is nothing harsh in here. There is quite powdered and grainy tannin. Flavour wise I get that dark, almost chocolate coated dark fruit. Well balanced by a nice acidity as well. So it is really juicy dark fruit. Quite subtle texture overall, yet with a good density of fruit. Pretty delicious to drink now. Well balanced, oak is finely integrated on the palate. It has a long finish. It keeps lasting. It offers delicious and juicy fruit. Good.
