Good dark berry feast without becoming an overkill. Probably a bit past its prime as the fruit starts to succumb to acidity. Enjoyed a couple of glasses completely, but would not go for a full bottle.

Effortless and forthcoming. It doesn’t demand all the attention and happy to play the second fiddle, but an extremely graceful one. Residual cherry, cigar box, prunes and touch of wet forest floor/earth. Great pleasure for money if it pops up on an obscure wine list.
