Soft, delicate texture with a range I flavors pushing through in its prime. Leather, bread, tobacco, chocolate, black cherry and currants, black pepper... such a rich range of tastes and smells but still a tight structure and not overly bold. A great wine. Very compelling.
Initial opening aromas of anise spice; a lot of fruit; yeasty (like hot cross buns out of the oven); faint double bubble bubble gum. Need to let breathe for at least an hour to let the tannins soften. Well balanced; better with food than alone.
