Opaque. Lovely nose, very much fruit driven. Silky entry, with lots of fruit but dominating tannins grab hold and don't let go. Very sweet on the tongue but with good levels of balancing acidity. A big aftertaste that leads to furry teeth and lingering fruit. A big wine, but one which will take ages to come into perfect balance. 90/100
