Intense colour with hints of violet on the rim. Bouquet of black cherry and cassis with well integrated wood. Very soft tannins on the front of palate, developing into a soft structure with plenty of freshness on the finish.
Ready for drinking now, although it has the ageing potential to develop further
in bottle for a few more years.
