Quite thick with a more floral nose of roses, plum and spice. Very good, with balance and sweetness. Young but excellent

I've had this wine on the list since we opened and it just gets better and better. A smokin' wine and, as a bonus, brett free.

1996 - Such a good blend of old world flavor and acid with new world texture and fruit

@David A Lentine @Ron R very nice but I was expecting more. We all thought the 2010 cores and the Clarendon hill beat this one. Very good, not insanely great. The wine was very light on the palate. Didn't seem to have the depth, broadness or character of the other 2.drink it now if you have it. Definitely won't get any better.

Simply Gorgeous, bold fruit, silky tannins, integrated acidity.

Briars and brambles. Great depth. Powerful fruit and intensity. Savor aromas and lovely balance.

Past its prime. Surely was lovely, some years ago. Too much of that old, funny caramel overtone. I'd have loved it, I'm sure, had timing been better.
