Dark fruit coulis; jammy on the nose, still overtly fruity, sweet oak and vanilla still showing too, smells quite hot and lively actually. Nice red fruit on the core; sweet red cherries; quite rusty / bloody on the palate, with hints of spice. Settled fruit, pleasant but not very complex. All components are together.
