Bricking red in colour with a wide rim and an opaque centre. A lovely nose of star fruit and beef tomatoes. Balanced entry with mature fruit starting to show some secondary characteristics amidst a lovely redcurrant. Surprisingly pronounced tannins show on the mid-palate. Sweet and tasty on the aftertaste and with a finish of licorice root and sweet raisins. Nice current drinking but no need to rush. 87/100. May 2015.
