Bright nose, jumps out of the glass, fresh. Balanced with a long finish, fine integrated tannins, not a deep dark wine, but lively and delicate

Creamed fruits, coffee grounds and dry floral nose. Ruby ripe dark fruits; blackberries, dark cherry, stewed plum, dry coffee grounds, tobacco leaf, softened leather, dry brown earth, crushed dry rocks, dry florals, nice acid and finish that will get there...it's just not today. There is great structure here with length and good balance but this needs another ten plus years to really shine.

Have been completely spoilt by Nico (also from Africa). I had a case of this (sadly gone). So good to revisit!
