This is drinking very nicely. Dark red fruit and a bit of oak, but some nuance developing, and the overall balance is excellent at this stage. The nose and attach have an appealing sweetness, but there are still fine, firm tannins on the (chocolatey) finish.
This manages the unusual trick for CA PN of being succulent while still very well balanced and fresh. Fruit is ripe, round and moderately weighty, and there's a bit of Burgundian stemminess. An intriguing peppery note (albeit a faint one).
liked this a lot (esp in QPR terms). Excellent balance and good persistence with some nice minerality/saline notes, while still having hints of richness (though this is a not a heavy wine in any way). In short, yummy.
