"Dark red. Ripe dark berries and cherry on the nose, with deeper notes of plum and licorice coming up with aeration. Rich but surprisingly energetic on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and good mineral snap. A spicy note adds vivacity to the focused, sappy finish. Showing an elegant personality already. 88-90 points"
