Nice length. A bit light, considering it's 11 years old. Good flavour, nice round earthiness and still some healthy acidity.

Rich, bold, full bodied wine. Great on its own, would go well with beef etc.

Burst of red and black fruit complements this structured, intense and complex wine perfectly. Hint of vanilla, dark chocolate and peppercorn adds more layers to the flavor palette.

Medium bodied, subtle fruit on the nose, yet spicy on the tongue, this well-aged wine went well with pork roast and gravy. Decanting will help soften this even more.

A mix of black cherry and sweet spice aroma. Smooth, medium-bodied and rounded tannin on the palate.
