Bought as a palate calibration wine for the morning of Paper 2. Certainly a modern interpretation, but in terms of ripe and pure fruit, and well-handled, ripe but firm tannins, rather than new oak. Ripe red cherry with some scented rose notes. Quite rich flavour with some palate power, harmonious fine but firm tannins and balanced acidity. Pretty long too. Showed class.
