Appearance: Clear, narrow pale ruby rim, (hint of garnet), deep ruby core, long legs.
Nose: Clean, medium – intensity of developing aromas of mineral, earthy, tar, creamy, sweet spice nuances of oak, vanilla, cinnamon, kernel: nutty, almondy, coffee, black fruit: prunes and plums.
Palate: Dry, medium – acidity, medium + level of tannins of a soft and ripe nature, medium + body, well integrated warming alcohol, soft juicy fruit and complexities of oak, leather, juniper berries and nutmeg. Medium + length.
Conclusion: Palate better than nose. Drinking well now but can keep for 5-7 years. Silky-textured, ripe fruit, the wine is at its peak.
