Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) Copiously fruity with a blackberry/cassis liqueur note, huge, flowery, almost chocolatey richness with superb freshness, purity, and a stunning thickness and opulence, this is spectacular Hermitage that should drink well for 30+ years.

    Nose is monster fruit with just a hint of leather and smoke. Big powerful fruit top note, blue berries and plum, with a fantastic middle ground, balanced and lush, round fruit and tannins with a subtle jammy and juicy quality, and just a hint of the pepper and spice you'd expect from Syrah. Simply incredible.
