Deep red colour with a tint of purple, the bouquet is smoky and seems char-oaky, with hard, astringent, drying tannins. Some sea-shell notes. The palate and aftertaste are very drying and somewhat astringent - but also concentrated and deep. A massive, persistent, if rather rustic wine. It's hard to see where it's headed, but of course the track-record is encouraging.
Drink: 2020 to 2034
