Still vibrant, with mega pepper and plum intensity. A little oaky for my sensibilities, but it works fine.

Stewed prunes, black licorice and bay leaf. Full bodies with a slightly medicine characteristic.

2009. Fresh berry aromas | berry with vanilla flavors | thinner body than I expected | drying tannins on the finish when not drinking with food.

A brilliant discovery.
Soft berry fruits on the palate, extremely comely on the nose with a silken finish. We had this with middle eastern food, grilled meats and the wine just sang throughout. Am more of a Pinot drinker but this was a fantastic surprise.
