2003 Vintage. This one is amazing! Clear medium garnet with thin watery rim. Clean on the nose still showing a lot of youth and potential. Pronounced flavours of raspberry, blackcurrant, layers of vanilla, spice and leather with a hint of strawberry. Dry on the palate with high smooth tannin, full structured body, medium alcohol with balancing medium+ acidity. Flavours lead with spice and leather but adds on vanilla, raspberry, blackcurrant in waves and goes into a long, complex finish. Very good quality. Aged for 10 years still showing potential to grow. Drink now, but can age even more.
