    (2004 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 128, September/October 2006 ($30): Good medium red. Raspberry, strawberry and mocha on the nose. Tighter and juicier than the Southing, with less fat but good sappy, dense fruit. Very rich but with plenty of vibrancy. Finishes with very fine, building tannins and good juicy persistence.
