Wine Description

(From 1982 Vintage) Still fresh and lively with plenty of life left. Outstanding wine.Lovely and showy but slightly lacking in density.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Deep, brooding aromas of apricot, minerals, menthol and clove, with a suggestion of super ripeness and outstanding complexity. Super concentrated, sweet and powerful, with harmonious ripe acidity buffering the wine's alcohol and extending its finish. This really saturates the palate with flavor.
