Deep ruby red in appearance. A bit stinky on the nose but really mute. Full bodied and medium plus tannins (7.5/10). A lot better on the palate than the nose with layers of dark berries, spices and a touch bitter. Definitely from the Petit Verdot. Long finish. Drink till 2032.

I had 2 glasses on Xmas day using my new coravin and just had the rest this evening. I believe this is one notch better than opus 2012
