Aromas: Fresh nose, displaying rather red fruity notes, herbs, slight hint of leather and quite discreet oak.
Palate: The palate is still youthful; still a bit tight with pronounced tannins and high acidity. Fruitness is more, once again on the red fruity side with hints of red currant, some herbal spiciness, such as bay leaf.
