Visually pristine, but a touch of age detected on the nose.
On the palette, the wine is lithe and full. Tannins are still upright. Tobacco and herbs come through, followed by sweetness and barrel toast. This must have a large proportion of cab franc in the mix. It's a fun wine which, 12 years on, presented well.
