(2010 Vintage) Good deep ruby-red. Saturated bright ruby. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, espresso and exotic oak on the slightly high-toned nose. Densely packed but also juicy and high-pitched, conveying a primary, youthfully aggressive character to the black cherry and blueberry fruit. There's a lurking creamy sweetness in the middle palate but this wine will need time to absorb its substantial ripe tannins.
