Dark and compact colour.
Intense aroma, dark fruit, quite some oak, chemical. Reminds me a bit of a 2005 red burgundy.
Medium body. Great intensity. Smooth. Dry finish, with noticable tannins. Some wood.
Should wait 3-5 years.

Quite bright color.
You can actually "smell" the acidity. Red berries, a bit perfumed and chemical aroma. Intense.
Medium minus body. Very high acidity (which for me is positive). Lots of tannins. Very young. Great potential.
