From a low yielding vintage, giving a weighty version of this wine with typical dark magenta colour and aromas of plum, ripe red berries and spice that follow through on to the full palate, finishing with a concentration of earthy, chalky tannins balanced with lots of natural acidity. Great longevity. 15.5% alc/vol
