Herbs, redcurrants, spices and some blueberries show on the nose now, which is a little closed. The palate though, is very velvety and shows lovely density with layers of fruit, fresh acidity and a long finish. Needs time to come around. Drink in 2020.

Vivid red. Fresh raspberry, cherry, licorice candy and cola scents show very good lift and clarity. Supple, open-knit red berry, mocha and rose pastille flavors pick up a spicy nuance on the back half. Displays very good clarity and floral thrust on the long, focused finish, which features well-knit tannins and repeating spiciness.
