A majestic showing, quite dense aromatically, driven still by wooden spice, there are notes of viscous fruit, tropical tea, savory toffee and warm minerals. There is tremendous concentration and good acidity which carries this wine long on the palate. Definitely, wow.

Honey, chamomile tea, fennel seed and dried apricot woven into a lush, generous texture.

Just a super wine! No oxidation, no overt bitterness with great color and freshness despite 13 years of age.
