This was a stand-out success in a recent tasting, showing real authority and class. It has a terrific density of colour: an almost opaque crimson/black, with just a chink of pink on the rim. Very rich, fat and open (decanted two hours) at first, with a big, supple nose of coffee and chocolate, thick cassis fruit and a little dank undergrowth warmth. There is plenty of polished, cedary aroma too. It is pretty massive on the palate: a great, thick slab of meaty, concentrated black fruit with a searing backbone of fine-grained tannins. There is terrific structure, and balancing acidity that is broad and quite generous, but decisive. This has excellent concentration of bittersweet black fruits and fine length too. Tom Cannavan
