Smelly nose of unattractive, bruised fruit. Dark magenta in colour with an opaque centre. Initially provides a dirty impression of bruised fruit and balanced tannins, but the tannins fade quickly. Nice complexity on the late palate as the tannins fade to leave the over-ripe fruit. Lovely chewy aftertaste and finish. Good length but suffers from over-ripe and jammy fruit. 82/100.
