Very nice - the fruit up front is a bit soft, but maybe it only seems that way because finish leaves such an impression?

Delicious. Big and complex! Nice gentle start, it grows on the tongue and ends with nice balanced tannins. Notes of bitter chocolate, plums. Dried currants and a slight citrus note.
