This is thick and dark purple. Looking big and broody. Very subdued on the nose, with little escaping but a little sweet strawberry and Christmas spices. Sweet, silky and seductive on the tongue with layers of flavour over gentle tannins that build into a beautiful crescendo. The aftertaste and finish are not big and are dominated by the fine grained tannins with a nice streak of rhubarb. Not as big as the expectations created by the colour. 90-92.
