(2006 Vintage) Dense and profound colour. Nose still shut with scents of red berries and currants, morello. Long, full, potent on the palate, offering up aromas of morello, raspberry, strawberry,and liquorice. Nice mid-palate followed by a beautiful finish with neat and tight tannins.
Very pretty aromas of blackberries, spices and milk chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a silky mouthfeel. Still tight but refined and long. Just as I remember. Best after 2008. 12,500 cases made. -- J.S. 07/10/2012 Aromas of vanilla, dark fruit, compote, dried fruit and spice. Pronounced sweetness and chocolatey richness in the mouth. Balanced, with a chunky frame. Drink 2012-2016. Alc: 13%. (15.17 points) Decanter
