2010 vintage. Great nose with hints of chocolate. Good legs, decanted for about 4 hrs. Big and complex. Cassis and tobacco and dark berries.

30+ minute decant. Dark red color. Nose has cherries and medicinal elements. Sour cherries dominate the palate. Big wine and too much alcohol at 14.5%. Medium minus finish. Very disappointing! Tasted like a £15 wine. Better juice out there.

Thoroughly complex; cassis, dark berry, raspberry, charcoal, fig... Unbelievable. Decanted for 90+ minutes.
