A polished and youthful red whose fragrant, heady, perfume of musky violets and cassis precedes a long and restrained palate bursting with ripe, translucent flavours of sweet and sour cherries and dark plums. Finishes tight, with velvet tannins.

Holding its hue well; fragrant black fruits with touches of licorice and spice run through the bouquet, with oak in the background. The medium-bodied palate is feline and focused; very long, finishing with exceptionally fine-grained tannins. Harmonious and elegant, there is no intrusion whatsoever from the alcohol; effortless power.
