"Dark red with a bright rim. Smoky, meaty and wild on the nose, with notes of violet, rose and woodsmoke. The fruit is very shy today but there is already a lush texture and considerable sweetness. Seems rather dense and extractive, with notes of plum and blackberry emerging as the wine opens in the glass."
