Full ruby red color, very little in the way of development. Fat, firm, stylish nose: a gamey red fruit character, Asian spice, black tea, soy sauce, mineral and a nice depth of soil. First impression is ‘big’. This is creamy rich on the on the palate: lovely intensity here to the fresh Morello cherry and red currant. Very good, ripe tannins. A lot of grip and concentration. Correct acidity. It may not be the most elegant but its generous, velvety and very seductive. A fine bottle of Suchots. Now – 2020+.
