Just starting to lose opacity. Virtually nothing on the nose , perhaps slight herbaceousness. Lovely texture on entry; soft and restrained fruit followed by firm tannins. The fruit is solid, ripe and intense but the tannins slightly dominate. The aftertaste is good, full of sweet fruit and is followed by a great finish full of dry tannins. 89/100
