Appearance - clear and bright ruby color with medium plus intensity. Some thick tears run smoothly down the glass.
Nose - a clean nose with some development is showing medium intensity aromas of ripe red fruits with some cooked plum upfront and cherry, a hint of fig, waxy, cedar oak notes, some spicy licorice and some earthy, dusty notes.
Palate - dry, medium plus acidity, tiny, spicy, fine grained tannins of medium plus presence with some drying effect. A medium minus body, very fluid on entrance and medium alcohol level. It has medium flavor intensity for now showing a very fresh red fruit character defined by bright cherry and plum. The oaky spiciness is also showing the cedar and waxy notes with a medium plus earthy, mineral length also bringing some tobacco leaf to the ensemble.
Conclusions (17,75/20) - very good quality, at first hand it seems light and bland, but its only showing that it needs some bottle time to bloom. For now it is a fresh wine with bright red fruit character and some spiciness. Fine acidity backbone and the earthy, edgy tannins claim proof of its aging potential, they will help flavors to concentrate and the ensemble mellowing, too much oak evidence for now. Give at least 3 to 4 years of bottle rest or enjoy with spicy seasoned red meat dishes. Previous Hexagon vintages have shown to develop quite nicely (2003 is presently drinking beautifully), so don't be afraid to hold some bottles if you're able.
