2009: blind , yes 09, yes south , yes squeaks into village standard. Warm, slightly plump on the nose - as u would expect in 09 - ; surprisingly neutral in flavour and looking a bit attenuated. I expected slightly more.

Smoking! Beautiful core of bright, red fruit w/ a kiss of vine smoke. Major Beauner!

Opened yesterday. Notes from Day 2 open. This wine has no right to be this good. On the nose: lovely cherry, wild strawberry, cardamom, cinnamon, soft soy...fantastic complexity. On the palate, fantastic acidity, sweet wild strawberry, spice, good density, Lovely finish with a touch of white pepper, very soft tannin. So compelling.
