A phenomenal wine that really rewards a minimum of 2, but ideally 3 hours of breathing time. The nose is simply intoxicating and the acidity and red fruits are so finely balanced that it just melts in your mouth. What a treat!

Excellent. Medium bodied, good acidity, dried cherries and dried red fruits, potpourri, subtle oak (not too much vanilla). Lots of life left, probably keep holding another 5 years.

18 a bit brown at rim, but deep red. Subtle, complex nose. Wonderfully smooth, very long.
