(From 2008 Vintage) Open fruit, rich, lush and layered, serving up a complex mix of plum, blackberry, black licorice and spices. Full-bodied and supple-textured, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the core flavor themes.

    (From 2006 Vintage) "Full-blown, ripe and rich, with intense and sharply focused dried currant, wild berry and blackberry fruit that's still fairly tannic at this stage. Ends with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2010 through 2015. 33,900 cases made. - JL"

    (From 2005 Vintage) "A showy young wine that's smooth, rich and concentrated. Delivers firm, intense yet supple layers of currant, cedar, toasty, cedary oak and tannins that firm up, offering hints of mineral, sage and dusty berry. Best from 2009 through 2013. 32,344 cases made."

    (From 2003 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Blackberry and damson fruit, roasted coffee beans. Bold flavours, rich and full bodied. Softly structured but balanced acidity giving freshness. Sensitive use of spicy oak, lush finish. Drink 2009-12.
