Opaque purple almost to rim. Viscous.
Dusty black fruits and straw on the nose.
Full and concentrated with mouthfilling flavours of plum and cassis and hints of iron and pepper.
Dry, firm tannins and good balancing acidity on a long finish.
Outstanding food wine. Drink now or keep for 3 or more years.
