It is deep ruby in colour, with a complex and compelling boquet full of pomegranate, cherry, vanilla, chocolate and spice.
There is also a pleasing savouriness, offering up notes of game, mushroom and thyme. The palate is concentrated and rich, with fine grained tannins that add texture and weight.
Complementing this is a core of refreshing minerality that gives the wine a lively tension, resulting in superb strucutre and length.
While ready to drink on release it can be expected to cellar well and evolve gracefully for many years.
