A very dark ruby colour with purple tinges. Intense aromas of ripe fruit, blackberry jam, spices and a hint of liquorice. The mouth is expressive and full bodied, well balanced between fruit and tannins.

Wine SpectatorReally dense and locked up now, this is packed with dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit shrouded by layers of tar, hot stone, bittersweet licorice and espresso. The long, dense finish has a great tug of iron buried within it. Best from 2011 through 2030.
