Just starting to lose some opacity. Concentrated and intense nose, but quite restrained. Slight hollowness on entry, with the impact being dominated by tannin before a great wave of fruit crashes over the mid-palate - fruit which is sweet and pure. The aftertaste is huge, full of fruit and ground pepper. Truly an amazing wine. 93/100
