Good bright, dark red-ruby. Brooding, powerful nose opens slowly with air to reveal cassis, chocolate and floral elements. Pure, deep and rich in extract, with terrific verve and definition to its chewy dark fruit flavors. In a dense, powerful style with the structure for a long life in bottle, but already sappy-sweet and fine-grained. This remained stubbornly closed in the recorked bottle, with some pungent oak tones emerging after 48 hours.
