Deep ruby with a purple tinge showing its still present youth and ripeness. The wine displays an overall earthy and masculine facade but there is fruit concentration holding up the frame. The nose offers graphite mineral, slate, purple flowers and black currants in a stone mortar, coffee bean and burnt herbs. The palate has firm, filling tannins that require age/oxygen and medium plus power of fruit concentration and length. Quite satisfying but will improve over the next couple of years as the berry notes catch up to the tannin and earth. Drink after 2014. Tasted Oct ' 13
