Nose – clean on the nose, with a pronounced intensity, developing, with a spicy, savoury note, then aromas of ripe black fruit – black cherry, black berry and black olive.

Palate – a dry wine, medium (+) acidity, with smooth medium well integrated tannins, medium alcohol with a full body, with a medium intensity (+) savoury note,  and rich dark fruits – black berry and black cherry, with a hint of spicy pepper, and a smooth long finish.

Quality – a balanced wine acidity versus alcohol wise, with a high level of extract giving deep colouring and concentrated fruit flavours, starting to develop complexity with age, with a long length.
