(From 2011 Vintage) Robust, rather earthy fruit, then a touch of violets to lift it and a hint of leather, good wine, good future.
(From 2005 Vintage) Generous and ripely fruity on the nose. Dusty and slightly dry on the end. I could do with just a little more zesty fruit on the palate. But it’s solid.
DecanterRating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Very dark, evolved, brick-red in colour, with a pleasant, open nose. Moderate tannins and strong, liquorice flavours on the palate.
