Deep red, 80% opaque. Jelly bean nose, very attractive and quite pronounced - even a bit of heat bringing a big promise. Youthful impact, big and sweetly fruity with surprisingly noticeable tannins. Lots of palate development with dark chocolate and black cherry. Hot aftertaste, almost numbing, followed by a modest black chocolate finish. Tasty, but a decade or two from being worth opening. Quite a heavyweight. 92/100. 10 hour decant.
