Not showing much age in the glass with a still vibrant ruby-cherry colour. Sour red fruit with anise, nutmeg, leather, tobacco and mocha. Oak is well integrated. Overall it's savoury tart with medium plus acidity and dusty tannins and very good length. Has a few good years ahead of it, but drinking nicely now.
Nov. 2015.
