This is showing well and was popular with the wine tasting group. I brought it as a bonus wine to drink after the formal tasting.
It's more restrained with good balance. Definitely not over the top. Nice darker fruits on the nose and the palate. More claret like than brambly. Good finish. This would pair well with a lot of beef dishes.
The oak was slightly intrusive. I think it might integrate better with more age. This has got several years to go.
