Cherry colour/ruby. Sweet warming smell. Spice. Tobacco and vanilla. Mid acidity. Rounded, full body. Fruity. Long finish, bit alcoholic. Perhaps benefit for bit more time in bottle? Very easy to drink. Good quaffing wine.
Opened and a glass poured straight away. OK, quite fruity and obvious tannin with a slightly dry finish. Just seems a bit young and exuberent, biting the side of the tongue slightly. Re-corked and left at room temperature for 24hrs. far better now, the dry finish and the bite has gone, fruit is smoother and the whole package more rounded whilst still being fresh. Just about **1/2 after 24hrs at the moment. Not complex (nor would one expect it to be), but decent fruity red that went well enough with a beef pie and would also be great in a casserole etc.
