Clear, rich ruby with a pronounced garnet rim. Very intense and dense nose of white truffle, fine savoury herbs, then lots of blackberry and leather. Round and supple in the attack and on the palate, with lots of fine, grippy tannins, building up in many layers, some blood orange, dark raspberry, full-bodied drive on the finish.

There is a lot to behold in this bottle, and it definitely shows the potential to soften and relax with more cellar aging. However, you definitely need to put the bottle aside for many years.
