Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) The deep, vibrant colour gives way to a fresh, plummy perfume with hints of tobacco. On the palate, the wine has lovely depth yet is lively and sinewy with lovely minerality and fine grained tannins. Similar to the 05, which is now showing brilliantly.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Amazing aromas of black truffles, crushed blackberries and dark chocolate. Dried flowers too. Full-bodied, with wonderful fruit that is layered and gorgeous. The finish is fruity, long and stylish.
