Deeply colored and with promising clarity, a little chocolatey and lilac, cedar, chalky and baked apricot, hoisin sauce, and graham cracker, beautifully savory and plummy, lush and with lifting spice and acidity. Long layered finish.

Lovely wine. Great nose. Very balanced. Capable of aging much much more.

Vintage 2007 / very complex smell with cedar leather and liquorice. Good balance and nice acidity. This wine has tension and is very lively. It's proof that a dreamwine not neccesarily needs to be found in the dreamyears only 👍

Lovely development. Soft on the palate. Has changed with time and has lost the rose petal Margaux element and replaced that with more savory and earthy overtones.
