Medium deep colour here rather ruby, it looks more like it has gotten some evolution. The nose has also gotten a hint of aging in oak, which is evident. More on the dried fruity side here, like red cherry, some spices. There is a hint of complexity, so more of what I would call a traditional European style. Attractive fruit there with those dried cherry notes, some wild berries and dried spices. The palate is classically bone dry, with a fresh acidity. Here I would talk about more moderate ripeness it is rather on the red fruit side, with red cherry, some notes of plum. There is a hint of oak in the background. The tannins are ripe, but they are still present. I think this is a wine that is made with more emphasis on freshness. It has a good length, and slightly layered. There are things going on with the finish there with those fine spices. I believe this is a wine that will develop more from further aging. Maybe it will soften a bit on the texture, mellowing those tannins. Anyhow a good wine.
