90% opaque. Very little on the nose. Nice texture on the palate, but with tannins initially dominating the modest fruit - but the fruit grows nicely to dominate in the end. A sweet fruity aftertaste and a dry-cheek tannin finish of great length. Lovely fruit but the balance is not there at the moment - I suspect that the wine is shutting down. This has all the signs of being a very impressive wine when it opens up again in a few years. 90/100
