Appearance: Deep dark ruby
Nose: The nose is open and varietal with notes of black plum, applewood smoke, and cracked pepper. Hints of cardamom and vanilla pods make the aromas very enticing.
Palate: Vibrant fresh plum accompanies roasted black fruit notes, supported by a good structure of smoky tannins, still youthful and peppery and full-body throughout. The oak is sweet but the structuring and the finish already show good length, promising to improve with age.
