The colour is profoundly deep, the nose a little muted, as if the wine is too powerful to show at first approach. However, once in the mouth the palate is rich, succulent, almost lush. A very fruit-driven style, heavy on the boiled black fruits, balanced by some freshness and a touch of steeliness. The finish is long, rounded and shows a lovely earthy, savoury edge. Balanced, supple and open.
