Medium dark red. Clearly has shed some of the oaky influences of its youth, with more true to type pomegranate and iron character on the nose. On the palate, the baby fat is apparent upfront but gone by the finish, where seriously respectable tannins accumulate. I like the direction this has taken in the cellar.
