    Young, dark profile, with ruby rim. tight upfront, With air, toned down, soothing nose of currants, spring flowers, caramel, rock minerals, minty leaves, coffee, hint of alcohol and olives, 14%. Nice nose. Black fruits, candied cherry, coffee bean, earth, easy drinking, slight bitterness at the back end. Very linear, dry tannins, not much complexity, missing good acidity, short on balance, weak mouth feel. Hard pressed for the finish, short, dry plum skin, tobacco.
