Beautiful, deep red colour. The nose is relatively closed-in at present, but it is very dense with ripe, red fruit.This vintage is quite vinous on the palate, with very round, tight tannin. Long, rich, full aftertaste.Already enjoyable to drink, but this wine has a very great aging potential..
Decanter(From 2001 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Plummy, slightly jammy nose. Lots of soft fruit on the palate. Freshness on the finish. Drink up to 2006.
