On the nose, deep red berries and powerful. Hint of chocolate and coffee. On the palate. smooth with good acidity but round and full bodied, good length. Lots of structure. Will keep for many years yet but very drinkable now.
I bought this direct from the cellar in 2011. It was good then, but needed some time. It has developed nicely since, with a round, structured nose and fresh red berries. On the palate it is now much smoother, rich and deep, but with enough acidity and tannins that it will take some more time in the cellar yet. Great wine.
