Spicy, meaty nose. Well judged amount of oak. It's there but not intrusive at all. Ripe fruit. Plum. Blackberry and black cherry. Tannins are still firm and a little coarse but the wine is already approachable. Bitter chocolate on the finish. Chocolate and a bit of tobacco comes out after a while. Quite nice.
