This is a very dense bottle of wine that really started to show off after an hour in the decanter. Dark ruby and opaque in colour, the nose is dominated by blackberry, blackcurrant, a bit of smoke and earthiness. Medium-full bodied with quite firm tannins and reasonably high acidity and a long finish. Seriously tasty bottle of wine! Tasted June 2012.
