Dark garnet red with some browning on the edges. Nose had a lot of green and vegetal notes with a slight undertone of cinnamon. Calm and integrated dark fruit on the palate. Undertones were a little savory with some grilled herbs. Furry on the tongue with a slight grittiness. Moderate tannins (6/10) and well integrated with a moderate body. Moderate plus finish.
