Tasted at the Grand Vin Masterclass in January 2010 Deep garnet-purple colour. Ripe plum, cassia, cardamom and a whiff of musk / animal on the nose with some mocha and cigar boxes. Medium to high acidity balances out the concentrated dark cherry richness. Medium to firm level of fine tannins and a long finish. (LPB)
A big, brooding wine, the fruit ripe and dense. Richness surrounds structure, giving a sumptuous layer to the dusty tannins. Flavors of currants, spice and juicy berries flow through the wine, giving power and suavity. The freshness of 2006 shows on the finish of this important wine. (RV)
Coffee, plum and spices on the nose follow through to a full body, with lovely fruit and a soft, silky-textured finish. Very balanced and beautiful, with lots of violet, new wood and richness. Long. Needs time. Best after 2015. (JS)
Deep red-ruby. Aromas of blackberry, licorice, minerals, flowers and peat, with some chocolatey oak emerging with air. Juicy and silky on the palate, with lovely clarity and inner-mouth perfume to its flavors of black fruits, minerals and iris. Finishes long and firmly structured, with intriguing soil tones and lovely floral lift. Classic medium-bodied claret. (ST)
A vibrant wine, this has a floral character adding detail and nuance to the red fruit while gentle tannins show an inner core of strength. The finish is black, warmed by alcohol, and the wine feels complete and smooth. Cellar this for ten years to let the wine's richness and character mature.
