Ruby red with hints at maturity.
A bit closed at first.
Nuanced with red fruits up front (candied fruit and strawberry) followed by dried fruit, some clay and cinnamon.
Fruit shines through on palate without oak in the way (a plus in my book).
Balanced structure.

Отличное вино, в ароматике малина, клубника, йод, барбарис, земляничное варенье. Во вкусе добавляется вишня, смородина, табак

Too young, but nice potential.

Deep, brooding and a little rustic and mountainous with its earthy and herbal flavors, while also retaining accessibility and warmth of juicy berry and cherry. Great right now, no need to wait
