Deep, even, red - pinking slightly at rim.
Rich and meaty nose with plum fruit, mint and oak coming through - Dense and brooding, but attractive.
Full bodied with warm berry fruit and a trace of leafiness, good acidity and surprisingly soft tannins. Mouth-filling, creamy texture and a long finish.
Very well balanced and attractive now, but will continue to develop.
It partnered a beef roast very well.
