This wine, an assemblage from young vines, displays a very attractive purple color that is deep, clear and characteristically youthful in appearance. Notes of fresh blackberry define an aromatic profile which is clean, fresh and lively, supporting a fine, delicate oak character that subtly respects the wine's fruit. In the mouth a firm, gripping texture shows off well-incorporated, finely-grained tannins to impart an attractive balance. This wine is fresh, with a long and delicious finish. With time to breathe, its crisp, black-fruit identity and aged character shows this to be a well-crafted wine. The vintage is one which offers immediate pleasure. Drink now, but there's no danger in letting it rest in the cellar for another 2 to 5 years.
