Intense powerful nose but the fruit has dropped off. My colleague put this big boy into a decanter for too long. Thanks Simon! 85 points.

Beautiful drop! Tried the 2008, lovely now but could improve with another 10 years. Well done Jimmy!

A big bold statement of what fine, fine things can be done with wine. Not usually one to be taken by these types of wine, I am absolutely besotted! Big and rich bit with a beautiful acid line, perfect oak balance and a really cool little saltyness through the finish. Dry grown, ancient vines; Kaleidoscopic!
