Visual: Medium bodied, cherry red, wine, bright and clean with an intense, lightly coloured tear.
Nasal: Very full and varied flavour, suggestions of ripe red fruit, of recently tasted nuts, cocoa, fine vanilla and accompanied by gentle hints of balsamic and spices.
Taste: Shows up as being well rounded and structured. Sweet tannins, lingering presence of fruit notwithstanding its age. All of which blends well with the refined notes of French oak, roasted coffee and chocolate, etc.
