Decanted for one hour. The colour is deep ruby with a hint of brick. On the nose, leather and iron, quite deep and animal scents, and a slightly dank character that is not especially attractive. Glimpses of a floral fragrance flit in and out. On the palate the solidity of the wine surprises slightly. There's a big, meaty density here, spicy on the lips and with a dark, earthy plum and cherry-skin grippiness. The texture is quite full, and the edge of acidity adds more to the solid feel of this wine. It might be a slight gamble as to how the fruit will hold against the structure over coming years.
