Deep intensity, a medium ruby core and a wide ruby rim with tinted long legs.
Distinguishable moderately intense developing aromas of mineral nature: tar, earthiness; oak, nutmeg, ginger, leather and ripe fruit: plums and black berries.
Good level of acidity matched with plentiful velvety ripe tannins. It is medium bodied with intense ripe berried fruit flavours: raspberries and cranberries, coupled by mineral hints of an earthy and stony nature. It has a silky creamy texture, with well-defined flavours of cinnamon, vanilla, leather, oak, generous alcohol finishing with a quite a remarkably long finish.
An elegant wine from a generous vintage, harmonious with ripe and mature fruit, complex aromas and velvety texture. It is ready to drink but will benefit from further ageing. 7-8 years.
