Powerful and invitingly fragrant nose of red and blue fruits, liqueur. Palate more restrained, still good fruit, also quality leather and a small hint of tobacco. Soft, slightly fluffy tannins and nicely balanced acid lead in to a very long finish. I tasted this while preparing a roast leg of lamb marinated in mint sauce, and then drank alongside the lamb at dinner. 20 minutes after my last sip of wine and last bite of lamb, the flavours of both were still playing out on my tongue. A delightful combination.
