Opaque at core, gradually fading across the whole glass to brown/red.
Dumb, lurking nose with some spicy, animal aromas and a hint of coffee.
Full bodied with sweet berry fruit, ferocious tannins and harsh oak flavours.
Big and chewy with flavours of fur, coffee and sweet plums coming through on a long finish.
A bit chunky and aggressive at the moment - it may come together with time?
