Deep garnet. My last bottle of these and definitely the best showing. Lovely bouquet wafting out of the glass showing dark plums, cherries and sous-bois. Complex palate with lively acidity darting in and out of a graphite, cherry profile with some resinous back notes that combine to give a lovely final. This feels very complete at the moment and I feel a bit sad that I've gone through my other bottles now - based on the showing tonight this could easily make another 3 years at least.
Needs at least 1-2 hours to really open. Anybody pop & pouring this wine is wasting it, IMHO. Decanted two hours and it opened up beautifully with a multi layered complexity and smooth construction. Still young, but coming along well.
