Opaque purple/red to red.
Deep, inviting nose of mushrooms, mulberries, violets and game - amazingly forward.
Big, full bodied wine with a lovely mouthfilling texture. Flavours evolve through mint, mulberries, leather, tar, raw tobacco.. Wow!
Quite firm tannins and a long, dry finish.
Young but far too drinkable now!
[This wine was so long, and coated the mouth so well, that the following wine was almost impossible to taste - time for waterbiscuits]
