Almost transparent in the centre; a mixture of crimson with a touch of violet. Initially open and perfumed on the nose with lovely blueberries, but this disappeared once the bottle had been open for a few days. Lovely texture in the mouth, soft and creamy with plenty of fruit but some fierce tannins make this a difficult wine to drink young. Dry start to the aftertaste, with tannins strong but with enough sweet fruit to always soften the tannic grip. This is a good wine; there is all the fruit needed to allow the tannins to soften with time in the cellar. 90-92.
