Wine Description

(From 2003 Vintage) This is downright exotic on the nose: mocha, coffee, graphite and coconut, lifted by sandalwood and cinnamon spice. Then dense, supple and fine-grained without coming across as heavy. Suggestion of aromatic tree bark.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Seductive blackcurrant cabernet on the nose; beautifully balanced, richly supple wine with a fresh acidity and an especially fine tannin; ripe, savory blackcurrant Cabernet flavour, long and subtle across the palate, discreet, elegant, polished, understated; long and graceful, gently spicy and scented, with no over extract, a particularly juicy complexity and lovely fragrant fruit length. A very beautiful rather than a powerful expression of Mouton.
