A huge wine. Lots of dark fruit and a hint of cassis on the nose. Still tannic and dark - lots of time left. Worked well with game meat and Cornish hen.

An interesting wine. High alcohol content make it a bit acidic. But well integrated wine with a medium to long finish - some chocolate on the nose - highly concentrated wine. Wonder what it would taste like a little less hot - with lower alcohol.
