Opaque black/purple with very slight pinking at rim.
Alcoholic, flaming Christmas pudding and plum nose, with spice and brandy - still very young.
Very full bodied and intense with very sweet, highly alcoholic flavours of plum and violet, with nicely integrated oak (wood smoke), raw cocoa, good acidity and completely submerged tannins.
Approachable and enjoyable now, but should keep developing over 5 to 10 years. Good!
