(From 1999 Vintage) Cherry-red in colour with red highlights in the final layer showing its ageing in oak for 24 months. Deep bright medium layer. In the nose, spicy aromas appear together with cinnamon and balsamic ones. Ripe dark fruit and light brown layers. In the mouth it is powerful and well-structured. Soft tannins. It lingers in the mouth recalling wide taste sensations. A prolonged finish again enhanced by vanilla and brown layers.
Tanzer(From 1999 Vintage) "Bright ruby-red. Spicy, slightly reduced aromas of red berries, licorice and bitter chocolate. Concentrated, creamy and liqueur-like; broader, richer and suaver than the regular '99 bottling, but also sappy and youthful. Finishes with huge but ripe tannins and superb persistence. Offers an uncanny combination of power and finesse."
