Would love to see this in a few years; still extremely youthful. Belies the 15% abv to feel remarkably elegant and refined in the palate with soft, delicate tannins. Finish is solid too

Dark garnet core. The nose displays a nice ripe berry with some crime de cassis and forest floor. The palate is nice but perhaps a little out of balance. The tannins are dry and the alcohol is a bit hot on the wine.

Silky, soft and very dry. Moderate tannin. Bitter anise on the long finish.

Floral and spiced, with lots of stems and hints of semi-carbonic juiciness. Smokey bacon and sweet fruit make this appreciable now but the structure seems aligned for the future. Bit hot.
