(2009 Vintage) Blessed by the superb 2009 harvest, this wine has a dark, dense colour. Intense, complex bouquet that confirms its ageing in quality oak: powerful aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants with a depth of toasted notes that blend with very fine oak. Pleasantly full on tasting with concentrated flavours. Clearly a wine of character and structure but with a nice, fleshy texture. Classy and elegant with good potential for ageing.
Wine SpectatorBlack cherry, currant and floral notes are expressive and alluring, balanced by loamy earth, tobacco and mineral elements that add a savory quality. Firm, well-integrated tannins give support to the polished texture, while orange peel acidity fuels the fresh finish. Drink now through 2027. 10,000 cases imported.–TM
