Big nose of dark fruits and liquorice, lots of soft fruit on the palate. Still plenty of tannins on a long finish. The fruit is so soft compared to the tannins I doubt this will improve and is on its plateau of maturity.
Decanted for 90 mins, poured back into the bottle. Served it in a 2 hr dinner. Nose had chocolate, purple fruit, dark fruit and vanilla. Palate is fresh with round and deep dark fruit. Its very expressive and structured. Long life ahead. Very good value to money. 92+
Really a wine for the future but is drinking now with a long decant. Deep aromas of plum and cassis explode on the palate before being arrested by good firm tannins. This is going to be a potential 100 pointer in the future
