Your nose first detects freshly-made espresso coffee and grated dark chocolate. Fruitiness is further provided by blackcurrants, blackberries and an abundance of raspberries.The barrel manifests itself in the fla- vour, with sweet spices, signs of toasting, and a sense of muscular tannin makes it truly robust. It’s a tough southern red, it has power, tautness, al- cohol and tannin, fruit and spice, and, of course, lasting taste.A well-built wine, as yet with no Zen harmony to it, though the opportunity, the potential is definitely there. For now it’s for drinking with heavier meals and enjoying at those year-after-year cellar re-tasting sessions.
