Deep garnet red in appearance. Well rounded nose with truffles, forest floor, black currants, smoke and aniseed. Medium plus tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. A lot of red fruits on the palate and very dry followed by some branches, cherries, herbs and some light spices. Long finish. Drink till 2036.

About 2 hours decanting made it wonderful to drink! Very juicy and fruity with great balance.

As always a perfect bottle for a lamb gigot. Great nose - needs airing a tad, long and fruitful. Subtle and profound at the same time

Hints of berries and leather on the nose. High acid low tannin... Simply amazing smooth wine. Open for about an hour and a half and keeps getting better! Wish I would have given it more time. would defiantly drink again!!

Fantastic wine. Only drawback is the fact that it could be anything, from anywhere...

Closed.....needs to breathe. Initial nose is intoxicatingly rich and powerful. Dark chocolate and cassis pervade. After decanting for 1/2 hour the underlying notes of citrus rind and pepper - however faint, begin to make an appearance.
