Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) Dense and ripe, with flashes of Black Mission fig, Turkish coffee and roasted apple wood running through the dense core of plum sauce, black licorice and currant paste. The long finish has ample depth and grip, with a singe of black tea. A very classy wine.

    I'd make sure to drink this within a day of opening. it becomes quite acidic very soon after a day. but when it's just opened it tastes wonderful with meat.

    (2001 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Very scented, opulent, really enchanting. Layers of flavour, gorgeous fruit, stylish and fine. Delicious. Drink 2-5 years.
