Vivid purple colour. Full nose of blueberries, very inviting. A neutral entry, not the "in-your-face" fruitiness that was expected from the nose; surprisingly restrained in the mouth. Lovely complexity with some tannins around, but these are soft and gentle and do not dominate. Fruit and dark chocolate all over the aftertaste, which is long although not big. 86/100. Tasted 27/11/08 after 1 hour in the decanter.
