"Good bright saturated ruby. Superripe aromas of blackberry, cassis, graphite, menthol and spicy, chocolatey oak. Rich, broad and sweet, with lovely dark berry intensity and floral lift. Harmonious acidity contributes to the impression of energy and extends the wine's fruit. Finishes spicy and fine-grained, with firm tannins reaching the front teeth. This has the spine to evolve slowly and positively in bottle."
