    (2008 Vintage) This wine has proven it can age effortlessly so enjoy its spicy, black licorice, meaty, peppery, black cherry nose but give some time to really impress. On the palate you will note a sense of freshness and elegance along with smoky, meaty, tobacco, prune, peppery, black cherry, orange peel and dried fig flavours. Fine intensity you can enjoy now with beef dishes or mushroom risotto, or wait five to seven years for it to mellow out.
