I don't find this unripe though there are some capsicum notes; not especially strong though. The colour is deep and I am most struck, as some other tasters have been, that the rather charred oak dominates and the fruit fails to differentiate itself. That said, a good bottle, nonetheless. Quite full-bodied, long and well handled tannins on the finish.
Quite a deep colour, no age; this has fresh, lively blackcurrant and plum fruit and good intensity in mid-palate, but is slightly diffuse at the end. A stylish wine, and just about ready although I think it should still develop further.
