Small accident on opening - my friend's rabbit pushed the cork in causing an explosion of wine coating me and the ceiling. Decanted immediately with the help of a chopstick.
The wine was deep and dark, with a seductive nose promising sweet lush fruit. The wine settled in and was much more together than I had anticipated, with lovely sweet tannins, great balance, and good long finish. It develops a real richness that tells me there is a long long life ahead. Really promising.
