On the nose, it is fruity, elegant and offers a nice intensity, power (in delicacy), a nice gourmandize, a nice definition of the pulpy/bright fruit. It reveals the notes of bright black cherry, strawberry and more slightly cassis associated with touches of plum, incense, gravel as well as fine points of black tea, blueberry, star anise, discreet points of sweet spices and pepper. The palate is nicely conducted and offers a nice pulpy/juicy fruit, delicacy, gourmandize, suavity, airy character as well as a nice fat with delicacy, precision, tension, a nice tangy frame, richness, a little unctuosity and suavity/sapidity.
On the palate this wine expresses bright cherry, tart/juicy boysenberry and more lightly strawberry notes combined with touches of juicy/tangy blueberry, gourmandize, small red fruit as well as hints of tonka bean, star anise/zan, discreet hints of fresh hazelnut, lily and sweet spices. Good length. The tannins are precise and finely mellow. A discreet hint of chocolate on the finish/persistence.
