Deep black in colour, darker than normal. The nose is full of cloves, Asian spice, rhubarb, cedar and dark cherry backed by a meaty, liquorice note. The palate is not viscous and dense but more filling and subtle, it starts out with moderate intensity but builds through the mid palate where it is over run by loads of fine grainy fruit filled tannin. The 2004 is more in the mould of the 2002 with excellent intensity and greater length. As each vintage goes by we understand the Bad Impersonator style a little more.
