Spectacularly smooth mix of pencil lead, cherry, pipe tobacco and cola. Fantastic acidity and balance. One of the best.

Needed 2 hours to open. Spine of Cabernet, suave of Merlot. Really well balanced. Nose is pretty, lots going on, hard to pin down, partly because I just want to enjoy it instead of concentrate on it. BlackBerry, blueberry, currant, dust , graphite, allspice. Tannins end smoothly, but with a healthy pucker. There’s iodine at the end, but not offputting. Awesome now. Probably should wait a while to open. Have one more bottle, hope I can.

The 2011 vintage does not always get the most love. Personally I really like it.
