One of the darkest of the 2011s on show. Little on the nose except a faint fragrance. Tannins grip from the first sip and hold very firm - certainly one of the most obviously tannic wines at the show. The fruit is present but the tannins dominate the palate. Huge tannin and fruit aftertaste - very definitely keeper and not an early drinker! 92-94. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
