Drinking much younger than expected. Still plenty of fruit and drinking at peak. Should go another 20, no problem!

Others enjoyed this more than I. Well made and classic herbaceousness.

Totally food wine. Had it with kofta beef spiked with serious cumin. Good match.

Dried Blackberry, green bell pepper, tobacco, fine resolved tannin. Great QPR and a lot of life left
