Deep red, opaque. Subdued nose, a bit of hard swirling releases some reluctant sweet fruit. The fruit shows better on entry and shows well on the mid-palate. Dusty tannins slowly coalesce - and keep growing to huge levels! The huge roasted-nut tannins and lingering fruit develop a lovely aftertaste. Despite the size of the tannins, this has surprisingly good balance and is a real brooding monster that needs to be held for at least another 20 years. Really impressive. 93/100.
