Saline, fino, wild herbs, purple flowers and mushroom on the nose. Highly concentrated with a garnet rim. Moderate staining, high viscosity. Creme de cassis, black currants, with all forms of spearmint. Moderate plus acidity and moderate minus soft and well integrated tannins.

Deeply staining dark purple. High viscosity. Sour cherries, eucalyptus, and mint. Creme de cassis and beautiful minerality on the palate, with a peppery kick on the finish. Elevated acidity and soft integrated tannins.

Absolutely wonderful, incredibly rich and unfiltered. Dark cherry and blackberry reduction, raisin, graphite mineral notes, licorice, nutmeg. What a treat

Out of 375ml. The nose; dry raisins, prunes, dry figs & dates, mashed dark raspberries, plum & black plum, walnut & date bread, sweet molasses, melted dark chocolate and violets. The body is thick & rich. Blackberry fruits, black plum, rum cane sugar, molasses, dates & figs, fresh prunes, round acidity and thick, lengthy, structured finish that needs another 10 years and will last another 30+ plus. Great pair with Hedy’s chocolate late mousse and walnut spiced bread.

Cherry 🍒Chocolate 🍫. Absolutely silky and lush. Had this 17 years ago and I remember it being far more brawny. Has definitely mellowed with age. Still an amazing vintage.

Good concentration, some resolve in the structure with plenty of time left

Rich and concentrated. The elegance and delicacy surrounding the powerful flavors and aromatics are astounding. This is a pivotal wine for the category. Deep dark berry core, Graham/molasses, caramel nuances. Fresh as summer preserves.
