Magnificent deep red colour. The first nose offers slightly roasted notes and aromas of red and dark fruit (cherry and blackberry) followed by a hint of chocolate. Lovely, fresh, vibrant start to the palate that features both sucrosity and pleasing acidity. This wine is very long on the palate with tannins that are still quite pronounced, which is typical of the vintage. Flavours of dark chocolate and mint precede notes of spices, angelica, blue fruit (blueberry, sloe) and juniper. The finish boasts great purity. Magnificent balance between power and purity.
