Intense, almost opaque ruby core with a purple rim on first release, this powerful young wine shows a highly fruity nose of ripe blackberries, ripe plums and strawberries. The mineral notes of the terroir, and a hint of fresh greenness work wonderfully as a foil to the exuberant fruit. On the palate there is a medium to full bodied mouthfeel with powerful structure given by warm, ripe tannins.
The wine is a bright, cherry red with intense floral and red forest fruit aromas on the nose with subtle hints of vanilla from the brief exposure to oak. The palate has a full and velvety texture with plenty of elegant red forest fruit and very good length.
