Very smooth. Good red meat wine, but it's interesting on its own. I don't know, just felt balanced.

Packed full of earthy, savoury notes with a gentle hint of red fruit. Good drinker now, however another 2-3 years laid down would be interesting.

Sadly this was past it's best. I drank a bottle from the same vintage 2 years ago and it was lovely. Unfortunately this was on its last legs although the label states it could be cellared for 15 years. This lasted not quite 11 years!
