Still feels very much on the primary fruit. Oh this should really develop beautifully – high and tight tannins, good acidity, good fruit, maybe lacks a little luxurious texture but seems to be quivering on the leash, ready to spring out of the box. Dark fruit on the nose, blackberry, with liquorice and even hints of tar. A young, big wine with ambition, and definite promise. Chewier tannins than many on display.
