(From 2011 Vintage) Firm and concentrated, this wine has great structure and density along with acidity and berry flavor. There is an attractive final spicy element.
(From 2009 Vintage) Wonderful concentration here; the wine has the most powerful wood spice, ripe and mineral tannins. It is impressive in every way, showing the total richness of the vintage.

Decanter(From 1989 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Fairly deep to deep red; succulent nose, quite oaky, good supple fruit here; pleasant fruit on palate but soft and dilute, lacks grip, light spiciness; quite good length.
