Dark ruby red in colour, after decanting aromas of roses and tomato vine swirled about in the glass. Concentrated black cherry and grape flavours joined vegetal traces and dusty flowers in the medium body. White pepper, bitter dark chocolate and repeating black cherry elements comprised the moderate finish. With nuances of cloying cough syrup flavours, this is still a decent glass with a meal, but there are many other wonderful bottles available, especially for the 2010 vintage that can be enjoyed instead.
