    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.
