Deep ruby/red. Atypical? Rich, dense, oaky, ripe nose. Palate also a little pruney and dry and tannic. A little over the top. Tannins drying out the wine. Extracted, dry finish. Lots of oak, slightly pruney finish.
Deep garnet to tawny rim. Mineral, cedarwood-like nose, with dried prunes, tobacco, and mediterranean herbs. Full body, with sweet black fruit.
Medium depth, with turn. Clean if not very expressive nose. Very structured palate in terms of acid and tannin, with fruit a bit hidden but there. Good length, on classic lines; not drinking now but should make a very good bottle from around 2015 for 10+ years.
