The nose reveals dark currants with some cassis layered over the top. Ripe, deeply rich fruit; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, blue fruits and candied strawberries on the edges. Dark chocolate bar, mocha bar, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, light caramel, dark rich soils, very light herbaceous, whiff of mint, saddle-wood, fresh tobacco, touch of dark crushed rocks, fresh, blue, red, dark red floral bouquet with violets.

The body just full and very soft, dry and dusty. Beautiful structure, tension, well balanced, excellent length. Ripe, deeply rich fruit; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, blue fruits and candied strawberries on the edges. Dark chocolate bar, mocha bar, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, light caramel, black licorice, dark rich soils, very light herbaceous, whiff of mint, saddle-wood, cedar comes on, fresh tobacco, touch of dark crushed rock powder, fresh, blue, red, dark red floral bouquet with violets. The acidity is beautiful. The finish is really nice but needs to be held 12–15 years in bottle to show you how truly beautiful it will become. It’s deep and dark and persists several minutes.

Photos of, Chateau Boswell, their immaculately clean barrel room, Estate fruit ready to be harvested and a side view of the Chateau.
