(From 2009 Vintage) Deep ruby in colour, this wine has layers of intense flavours including black berries, blueberry, raisin, savoury notes of mushroom, fresh soil, lavender, and refreshing juniper. Full-bodied, the complex flavours last on the warming, supple finish.
(From 1997 Vintage) The vibrant red color and glycerin legs indicate a wine of considerable complexity. The nose has gobs of fruit (to borrow a frequently-used phrase) with an underlying intensity of compoted pitted fruit. On the palate, the fruit embraces the structure of a wine evincing power with a delightful mouth-filling elegance and texture.
