Deep and opaque. Slightly dirty on the nose, but under this it is sweet and intense with a twist of orange peel. Intense fruit on the palate then a powerful tannic core. Very big on the palate, full of juicy purple fruit; quite possibly the biggest palate of the 20 wines at this tasting. A delicious finish, dominated by the fruit and one which lasts a long time. Stunning - big but very well balanced. 93-95
Tasted 12 September 2018.
