Dark ruby. The light nose is oaky, with hints of blackberry and chocolate obscured by a haze of heat. Concentrated sweet blackberry fruit on the palate with barely enough redeeming acid and a lacing of tannin. Long finish. Not my style, but I can see its attraction. 55+11+15+7.
Fantastic as others have described. Decanted, but only for 30 mins, and was extremely drinkable at that point. Almost too soft for steak, the tannin was velvety, the fruits harmonious and some lovely vanilla and oak overtones.
