Appearance - clear and bright medium minus ruby color, just slightl more intense than the cc. Clear visible tears.
Nose - clean, youthful medium plus intensity resembling ripe black cherries, sweet oaky notes of vanilla, dark ripe plum, some sweet spice notes of cloves.
Palate - dry, high acidity, a medium plus sinew tannin level, medium plus alcohol and body. Medium plus flavour intensity showing the dark fruit notes of cherries and plum, flowery rose hints and lots of mineral flavours on the finish, earthy and stony. Medium plus length.
Conclusions(16,25/20 ) - good quality, some sense of place although fleshy and showing clear oak influence has a nice acidity backbone. Intense, ripe but fresh fruit concentration, very muscular structure but relatively approachable to drink and rewarding right now with edges smoothed by oak ageing and creamy Merlot.
