Medium-deep, ruby-purple colour, quite young. Youthful nose as well, combining some sweet plum with red berry fruit. Slight touch of vanilla and quite discreet, if any, oak. Medium weight on the palate. Still youthful with a slight firm tannic grip, there is a hint of herbal spiciness, beneath that that is quite pleasurable fruit. Rounded with juicy plum, red berry fruit. Yeah, quite subtle and fruity on the finish. Medium length style that I think is best consumed very young. I would still give it a short time in the cellar for that tannic grip to integrate. Otherwise it is fine.
