(2013) Quite an elegant, violet-touched cherry fruit here, it has concentration and intensity, but there's a little bright edge that is very pleasing. A minty touch to the oak adds to the plush but creamily vibrant picture. Really creamy and dense on the palate, this is a big wine and a plush one, coating the mouth with sweet, dry fruit and extract, plenty of spice and alcohol, but overall it is very successful - crying out for a steak and modern in style, and well done.
