Gosh! What a lot of personality on the nose! Massive fruit on the palate. Seriously serious wine… Lovely pungency and lots of mineral quality. Firm and long. But it could easily be swamped by food that is too emphatic. Stay with the fish and chicken… That said, the wine itself might overwhelm the odd oyster! So ripe it almost tastes sweet. VGV
