Quite a nice nose, with creme, black cherry, licorice, grass, caramel, yet a hint alcohol towards the end. Almost a salty first attack, licorice, red cherry, oak, orange, hint of mint and bacon. Quite well structured, with acidity, tannin has softened already, should be drunk now. High alcohol isn't overpowering, decent finishing. Rudy red with a slight browning on the rim.
