(From 2010 Vintage) The colour is bright and clear, and there is a most appealing nature to the blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit; the oak and tannins are perfectly balanced.
(From 2008 Vintage) "Dense ruby. Black and blue fruits on the aromatic nose, with complicating notes of licorice, vanilla and pipe tobacco. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering sappy dark fruit flavors and hints of mocha and bitter chocolate. The vanilla and spice notes carry through a long, sweet, gently tannic finish. This is delicious now but has the depth to age."- 90 Points. International Wine Cellars
