(From 2009 Vintage) This is distinctive, with lots of showy pain d'épices and blackberry reduction offset by roasted apple wood notes and a strong graphite spine. Shows plenty of flesh through the finish, featuring extra linzer torte and boysenberry notes that course along, with nice buried grip.
(From 2007 Vintage) Good medium ruby. Black fruits, licorice and a whiff of menthol on the nose and palate. Sweet and supple in the mouth, with rather soft, dusty tannins and good length.
