Dark ruby with purple reflections, brightening at the rim. An attractive bouquet of cassis and liquorice, with pleasant oak, a hint of Valrhona chocolate, and sweet oriental spices. It is juicy and complex, with dark cherries, blackberry confit, silky, fully-integrated tannins, and mineral freshness on the finish. It comes across as light on its feet, has good grip, and shows great promise for the future. (2020-2050).
