Hollow nose showing little other than some vague blueberry. Satin texture, big tannins and big fruit. A very powerful wine with a good balance between the fragrant fruit and the tannin that deliver a big palate presence. A big aftertaste and a huge finish of licorice root. A very big and promising wine with a great future ahead of it. 96/100. Drunk 14-May-14
