This is a dark purple wine fading to garnet at the rim. It has a powerful, complex nose of rich prunes and vanilla wrapped around a meaty core. This is followed by raisin and some herbaceous notes. The palate isn't quite as complex but it has great structure with sweet, firm tannins. There's some vanilla again but it's a bit more subtle than the nose and is entwined with black fruits. It does fall away on the finish a tad but I look forward to seeing this evolve over the next few years.
