The wine is a lovely deep, inky purple in the glass, and I've given it a good 15 minutes to open up a bit, as the first impression on pouring was that it was quite tight. Having let it breathe a bit, the nose really presents a lovely combination of leather, sweet berries, vanilla and baking spice that suggests you're in for a treat. The taste is somewhat fruity, with ripe plums and berries on the front, leading to some cherry cola notes midpalate. The finish is fairly dry, but uneventful (so I guess that would be very smooth, but short).
