Corked. Feck. 1 down, 2 to go… Cracked 2nd bottle a couple of weeks later with my bro. Deep ruby-black colour still showing youth, which was confirmed by a degree of tannic bite on the palate. Needs a few more years to flourish. Concentrated flavour and complex aromas including black cherry, pepper and some meaty notes, with a degree of minerality; will reserve judgement till bottle 3 in 2-3 years.
