(From 2000 Vintage) This dense purple-colored 2000 offers up a sweet perfume of black cherry liqueur intermixed with cassis, graphite, licorice, and incense. Full-bodied and concentrated, with high tannin and loads of extract, this is a serious, broodingly backward, high class offering for patient connoisseurs.
(From 2011 Vintage) A beautiful ample and generous wine, very soft, charming. Good smooth fruit, lively vigour and some depth, anything beautiful spicy finish.
