The wine was dark ruby in colour and threw some sediment. It offered dark fruit, chocolate, cedar, leather, tobacco, spices, cinnamon and vegetal notes on the very cedary nose. On the palate the wine showed sweet dark fruit, black currant, plum, chocolate, cedar, tobacco and spices, with medium to medium-plus acidity, medium-plus tannin, moderate heat from the alcohol and good length. The concentrated, full-bodied wine was reasonably balanced and drank better than the bottle I had about four years ago. Paired well with steak. Drink now through 2020.
