A full and rich red with fruit and depth. Plenty of new wood can be seen at this stage but it is going to come together nicely. Give it two or three years to soften.
* this is aged in 30 hectoliter new French cask for 9 months (much larger than Barrique, so not to over-oak it) and helps tame the oak notes in youth. Some oak is evedent here but matches the exuberant, expressive blackfruit notes nicely.
