The wine's color is reminiscent of black cherries, a sign of perfect youth. Its aromas are an elegant association of fresh and jammy black fruit; careful aging has added a fine, charming woodiness and additional grilled notes of toasted bread. On the palate the attack is fresh, and young, tight tannins are well-incorporated into the wine's body. The tannins will develop with time, but for now they are nicely balanced with the wine's fresh, nervous acidity. The mid-palate is opulent, with a texture that reflects the wine's spirited style. The finish is still dominated by young tannins, and is very long, flavorful and refined. Although this wine will offer great pleasurein several years, it has an incredible potential to age well into the future.
