A vibrant and youthful dark plum, deep purple in color gives way to a somewhat shy nose, but with aeration notes of light wood spice come forth with an underpinning of dark plums and assorted red and dark red berry fruit aromatically. Medium bodied, this has some notable concentration and engaging fruit purity with dark red berry fruit flavors kissed with a touch of earth and subtle spice. The tannins are finer grained and nicely in tune with the fruit, giving a light powdery impression on the lengthy finish. As this opens up the palate becomes more supple and silky in texture, while the fruit offers layers of complexity that will become even more evident with more bottle age. This is still quite primary and in need of a year or two to really start opening up.
