Wine is a perfect example when u mix a fruit forward wine maker with a difficult and cold vintage. This is up there with Colgin and Abreu for the best of the 2011s which as a vintage weren't my style of wine except for a handful of exceptions. This wine has 0.0 green notes which I hate. It's nose is fresh cut Violet's and wild flowers. Palate is silky smooth (low tannins) notes of mountain berries but without the usual Bevan fruit forwardness. Nice acidity makes the mouth water but not at all offensive. Nuanced notes of dark plum and pipe tobacco make an appearance as well. I can't see this getting any better with age. It drinks like an aged Bevan already. Beautiful wine. Prob the wine of the vintage ahead of the handful who did well in 2011. Well done Russell!

Guessed right when I picked this wine. Actually with Russell's wines they are all good guesses.
