Opaque purple/red at core, with some fading at the rim.
Chalky, animal notes on the nose with a dash of oak and perfumed cassis and mint aromas coming through.
Light to medium-bodied with flavours of cherries, plums, cedar and tobacco.
Dry with grippy tannins and oak coming through on a decent finish.
Still closed, needs at least 2 to 3 years.
Wine Tasting: 1996 Bordeaux
