Very dense and opaque core, losing some colour at the rim. A fine nose with some evolution, some complexity, with that peppery spiciness. There are some smoke and layers of dark fruit like blackberry and plum. Fine oak as well adding a slight smoky element. Nice palate there. Quite full-bodied, yet with a rounded texture. Juicy dark fruit like, peppery blackberry, with some tobacco notes. Underlined by fine oak and quite grainy tannins. A touch of chocolate, really juicy and attractive. Subtle with a well-balanced freshness. A good grip, long finish. I really like this spicy, meatiness in this one. Modern style yet underlined by that freshness, I imagine. Yeah, really nice.
