This inky-dark, semi-opaque wine has a nose of uber-ripe bramble and cassis, with notes of damp earth, polished leather, tobacco and freshly-baked bread. The palate offers a rasp of rich, ripe but gently rustic tannons cannot conceal a core of luscious black and red fruit flavours, with ample acidity providing a refreshing counterpoint, making for a youthful, vibrant mouthful of loveliness. Part of me says that this needs a year or two to soften (this note written June 2016) but the other part says - if you like a touch of tannic bite - why wait? It isn't for wimps, but you get a lot of bang for your buck, and it also has the potential to age nicely for a few years.
