Developed, hard varnishy oak with a touch of Bovril and very little fruit. Lacks charm. Going nowhere. Quite dense, too hard and grippy. Black olive, cassis. 16, 17, 15, 17, 16, 16.5

Medium red-purple; smooth blackberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant aromas have a gentle substrate of oak; the long, savoury palate shows the influence of merlot in the blend; finishes with lingering tannins. Drink to 2012.
