Opaque, black crimson colour. The nose is impressive with its range of aromas which are a sniffing pleasure. Vanilla, spice, violets, blackcurrant and confectionary. The palate is totally mouthfilling and will satisfy the needs of any wine lover wanting a full bodied red. Concentrated flavours of blackcurrant, spice and plum with fine grained dry tannin, followed by very long blackcurrant, spice and confectionary aftertaste.

Yet another classic release in the short lineage of this exceptional label. Built around the deep, almost impenetrable dark plum and blackberry/blueberry flavours so typical of this wine, it's remarkably elegant, fine-grained, tight and savoury, given its spectacular concentration of flavour. Perfectly balanced, it's very firm and focused, with a terrific long-term future. Drink 2010-2018.
