Deep ruby and opaque in the glass this shows no signs of tiring and would age gracefully for at least another decade. Easily mistaken for bordeaux blind, firm, rough tannins but enough acidity to balance them. Red fruit, leather, smoke, earth, tobacco and graphite. Complex, structured and traditional; a gorgeous bottle of wine.
