jet black colour, no light getting through. aromas of tar, pepper and cinnamon. flavours surprisingly gentle, strawberry / raspberry notes with hint vanilla. nicely balanced, very good length but a little narrow
Deep ruby, almost purple color. Full-bodied flavors of dark plums, blackberries, earth, raisin, mocha and vanilla. Firm tannins and nice acidity. Will age well. Drink between 2013 and 2021.

Wine Spectator(From 2006 Vintage) "Offers a powerful aroma of crushed red fruits, with flavors to match. There's an intense minerality that's accented by notes of beef and pepper, with medium-grained tannins on the closed finish. Needs some time in the cellar. Best from 2009 through 2013."
Decanter(From 2003 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Complex, brambly, pepper, spice and herbal nose, aromatic. Firm tannins. Very big and complex, with tremendous richness, long and rich in mouth. Drink 2011-16.
