Very deep, even, purple-red.
Dense, stewed overripe fruit, creamy, spicy oak and alcohol on the nose.
Chewy and mouth-filling with sweet strawberry and raspberry fruits, quite high acidity, hard tannins and a long finish.
Very young - the wine developed over half an hour in the glass - but didn't give the impression of being a wine that needed a great deal of time.
Probably best to have another look in a couple of years! Well worth the price tag though.
