(2003 Vintage) Opulent aromas of blackberry, olives and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big chewy tannins and a long, long finish.
Hazy, dark purple, faulty, full body, spice and black fruit aroma, off-dry, medium acidity, tannin still strong but smooth, black fruit and red fruit flavor, spice, a bit herb taste, long length. A balance wine with fruity charter. overall it is a good wine with strong St Julian style. after breathing for an hour, tannin become smoother and so as the body. Seems too young and can keep for some more time.
Dark rose red, full body, tannie smooth, after taste long, RP95

Decanter(1999 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Smoky coffee and deep blackberry fruit. Great earthiness and liquorice palate with very tarry tannins and raspiness. Good acidic structure.
