Deep purple/red fading to red/pink at rim.
More restrained nose than previous wines with notes of sweet alcohol, cassis, cedar and black pepper.
Full bodied with a silky texture and excellent balance. Spicy cedar and tar, good acidity and ripe tannins underpin ripe, peppery fruit.
A wine with great elegance and structure that will be outstanding in 5 or more years.
