Dark purple red. Closed, but fruity bouquet with oak and black fruits. A lot of tannin and even more acidity. Full bodied. Very thick. Oak and ripe cassis juice. Long lingering aftertaste with some bitterness. Enormously powerful and great wine which is by far not ready for drinking. On the other hand I wonder if the enormous acidity will ever evolve to a more pleasant one. Difficult wine. I score it for its merits now, but in time it might go up……or down. (In 1986 I did not have experience enough with wines like this.)
