Brilliant Red garnet-Soft fruity nose with some vanilla and fresh herbs. Very silky mouth feel. Elegant and spicy. Lots of spice and fruit on the taste. Good acidity supports the backbone, tannins are still a little hidden. Middle not as assertive as it should be. Needs more time to develop. Good persistent aftertaste finishing off the wine with a bit of exotic spice.
