Was worried that this was ageing too fast, due to poor temp control in my flat. Slight hint of brick-red at the edge suggested maybe so. Nevertheless, very soft / silky tannins, (but with notable acidic structure) suggest that it is OK to drink now (and very pleasant drinking it was too!). Mid-garnet colour. Toasty strawberry or redcurrant aromas (maybe with a hint of mushroominess?).
