1st of 3 mags, decanted an hour - deep dusty red, little development; decent bouquet, plums and earth, quite simple; fullish, long and persistent, merlot like if without complexity of top right bank claret, consistent with nose, slightly dusty and hot, scope for improvement yet, slightly disappointed relative to hype, not fine. Very good indeed (17/20).
