Very intense dark ruby with a brooding, black centre; massively structured with powerful tannins and serious oak treatment harmoniously woven into a tapestry of richly fruited layers. Superbly crafted with plush dark fruit and tightly knit structure boding well for a long life. A long focused finish presently only hinting at the treasures to be revealed over the next 4-6 years and beyond.
