Deep red colour with a purple tint. Very plummy, but not quite jammy in the bouquet and only a hint of peppermint. Some dark chocolate and a trace of fruitcake, too. A big, grippy, tannic wine, dense and thickly textured, not an elegant wine, but rustic - the tannins are a trifle grippy and assertive.
Drink: 2014 to 2034
