Quite full red robe, with a lighter top. There is baked angle to the bouquet, compact, compressed red fruit such as raspberry presence, a hint of raisin. It is grapey and rather raw. The palate is sturdy, comes with an implicit power that means it is best suited to cool weather drinking, autumn dishes. There is a spiced take, and the tannins are just on the dry side. Try decanting it.
