Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Tightly wound, with a good chalky vibrancy and taut red currant, damson plum and bitter cherry notes that show ample length.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1996 Vintage) Fully mature, with a big, fragrant bouquet of damp earth, weedy underbrush, asphalt, Asian soy, and ripe plums and cherries, this medium-bodied 1996 appears to be on a fast evolutionary track. It reveals plenty of delicious fruit, soft tannins and enough acidity to provide definition.
