Deep red and attractive, showing signs of early maturity; 85% opaque. Lovely delicate fruit on the nose, a swirl of the glass bringing out sharp redcurrants. Later, the nose was still attractive and fruity. Lovely fruity palate with soft tannins giving a nice structure. Plenty of sweet and fragrant fruit on the palate. A gentle and fragrant aftertaste and a lingering finish. Soft and gentle this suffers from also being slightly flabby. 85/100.
