The wine has a good balance between fruit, the oak and the acidity. It has a medium length, medium+ intensity, and medium concentration. Well-made and will benefit with bottle age. Conclusion Sophisticated, persistent, and memorable. More perfumed than spicy notes foretell a sophisticated wine. Albeit somewhat austere, the wine will still evolve and come into its own. The wine will benefit with prior decanting.
