Youthful, medium brick red. Lots of young plummy fruit aromas, as well as dried fruit, figs and nuts on the nose. Really smooth on the palate, silky and elegant in texture with balanced acidity, more dried fruit and spice notes. The flavours really linger. This has all the colour and richness typical of the excellent 2000 vintage combined with mellow, spicy characters from 10 years in cask.
