Starts jammy as a breakfast at the Lanesborough then unfolds to a very muscular, articulate wine. It's intense, powerful and extremely focused. Anis, cassis, dark berries marmalade. Can't recall the specifics of the vintage but I feel a quite hot one. The 04 insignia feel quite reductive and over ripe for me. Not my taste at all but a good example of an over the top wine.
