Bright ruby-garnet core. A little muted when it was uncorked. Aerated it with a Vinturi into a decanter but it still took more than an hour before the black fruit aromas emerged amidst the wet black tea leaves, green bell pepper and eucalyptus nose. Smooth tannins on the palate with medium acidity and length. Not very impressed but I probably didn’t give it enough time to begin with. Good with the roast duck and garlic beef cubes at Imperial Treasure. The last order of calamari rings went down very well with it too.
