Deep ruby, and quite a ‘dark’ nose, too; cassis, pencil-lead, cedar and coffee but there are redder mulberry and plum notes, too. It’s fleshy but firm-edged. The finish is again insistent with a nice gentleness to the length (more gentle than the youthful, fairly densely packed palate at this stage). The tannins creep with fruit clinging to them; they’re almost elusive, with no grit or blockiness, kind of melted into a velvety wine. Of the three, this is the one calling for time or at least some breathing to let the fruit unfurl and come into step with the wine’s energy.
