Very dark and glowing. Blackish crimson. Rich and curranty. Dried fruit smells but not too dried on the palate. Tangy fruit. Quite mellifluous but a bit dry on the end. Some juice and quite a bit of graphite. Lots of minerals! Pavie Decesse? Some lusciousness. And a bit of complexity too, though it does dry out a little on the end. Just a bit forced on the finish, but it's set for the long run, that's for sure.
