Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, bitter chocolate and mint on the nose. Rich and juicy, with lovely definition to the flavors of blueberry, violet, minerals and exotic spices. Finishes with dusty but ripe tannins and excellent mineral-driven persistence. Very nicely done.

Smoky, seductive nose. Rich and velvety even though there's a firmness to the tannnis. Good freshness and an attractively dry and savoury finish. (JH)
