Deep red with a narrow rim, looking to be in early maturity. Attractive on the nose with gentle fruit and a lovely perfume. Soft entry with ripe fruit and generous tannins that have been softened by a touch of age. Surprisingly big on the palate. A delicious aftertaste of fruit salad chews and a long, big finish. Very tasty. 90/100. 04-May-16
