(2003 Vintage) Deep garnet. Some cedar is still apparent on the very youthful nose, slightly masking the otherwise attractive cranberry, plums and cassis fruit aromas with a whiff of cloves. The palate is well balanced with medium to high acidity and medium to firm, ripe, velvety tannins. Long finish.
DecanterRating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Wonderfully aromatic nose with a mix of citrus and tropical fruits (mandarin, passion fruit). Palate rich, full and ample with a marked oak presence. Clean, fresh finish. Drink 2004-2010.
