Red brick colour indicating maturity, but might develop further. Firm backbone, but no harsh tannins. Dark fruit flavours, some savoury tones, and some of the cigar box/lead pencil characteristics of a fine claret. I think it could easily pass as a very decent St Julien/Pauillac. Would probably pair well with steak. A serious wine for the 'Old World' drinkers.
