Quite a deep, semi-opaque carmine colour, which is an indication of what is to come, the nose displaying dense, multi-layered aromas of bramble and blackcurrant, spiced orange, damp earth, leather and a touch of charred oak. The palate is generous, ripe and really quite expansive - masses of pepper and spice-infused dark berry and cherry fruit flavours coat the mouth, with a touch of meaty/herby savoriness, a hint of licorice and balsam, and again a splash of oak, all of which is wrapped in a cloak of rich, ripe tannins, nicely offset by a balancing streak of cherry skin acidity. Ideally, it will need another year or two for the individual elements to fully knit together, but there is the unmistakable whiff of a fine wine about this - and it has the structure to age and evolve gracefully for at least another 10 years, and perhaps even beyond 2030. Biodynamic.
