Dark opaque purple core with a deep dark ruby rim. Some green, unripe fruit notes seemed to dominate the nose at this juncture. But that layer of sweet vanilla, kirsch cherries and sweet spices was quite assertive in the background. Notes of ripe Envy apples on the nose too. Pronounced ripe ENVY apples, dried wolfberries and mocha on the palate, strong tannin structure but not harsh. Robust and powerful. Med acidity; med finish. Needs time for complexities to evolve. No-go at the moment. Spicy notes on nose and palate. Single dimensional at this juncture.
