Deep red but not youthful. Muted nose, some warm fruit on the nose but very little. Fruit on the impact with candied strawberry and hints of icing sugar. Sweet, candied and fruity mid- and late-palate. A warm aftertaste with fragrant fruit; a great length showing ghosts of the tannins and nice late hints of black chocolate. 92/100. 05-Dec-17. Decanted 2 hours.
