(2004 Vintage) Saturated opaque purple/black, it has a remarkably kinky, exotic perfume of fresh asphalt, pencil lead, smoke, pepper, game, blueberry and black raspberry. Full-bodied and voluptuous in the mouth, the wine is dense and packed, with amazing purity, sweet tannins, and a complex collection of sensory stimuli.
100 me aug 4 2013. interesting nose of tamarind and opulent creamy fruit. palate has perfect balance, great expansion of structure and a persistent finish with well integrated tannins. fruit driven and very youthful. no oak noticed. should age for decades.
top wine of the evening beating 2 granges, 03 runrig and attunga. all round beauty with finese.
