[WSET D5 notes] Deep purple, medium intensity, plum, blueberry, dark floral, "Douro bake”, gamey, savory, menthol, spice, sweet, VA, fortified high alcohol, medium+ acidity, medium+ fine-grained tannins, medium+ body. Medium flavor intensity esp more spicy notes, and savory minty earthy notes. Palate shows the youth of the wine, alcohol is unbalanced. Medium+ finish. Improve with further aging bc with so much solid dominant primary fruit it will turn into more tertiary fruit with bottle age, with the structure to support aging - tannins, acidity, and sugar will allow it to evolve and integrate.
