Opaque purple/red fading slightly and evenly to a deep red rim.
Lurking, but perfumed and attractive, with plummy, meaty aromas - obviously a real leap in quality.
Medium bodied with sweet cassis, rich, charred oak and tobacco flavours.
Rounded with firm tannins, good balance and a long, slightly hard finish.
Gorgeous, concentrated stuff for drinking between 2003 and 2010+.
