Very dark purple to the edge. Decanted 2-1/2 hrs. Tannic and hard on opening. After a few hours nose of brambly blackberry and black currents. Some wood and a light perfume. Still tannic but balanced the fruit nicely. Same blackberry and currents. Reminded me a little of a good "mountain" cab. Medium to long finish. Drinking well now but long life ahead.
Nose of blackberry, tar, chocolate, stews prunes. Taste of tar, blackberry and chocolate. Served with buffalo pie, rice and green beans. A balanced, smooth wine with very gentle tannins with deep black fruit flavours. Have to go back to Lytton Springs to buy another bottle.
