Ratings & Tasting Notes:
Quite deeply coloured and strong red notes at the core still. Fresh and lightly herbal, even a little note of pepper and capsicum and fresh cedar but also some undergrowth and a delicate meatiness and sweet leafy red fruit. That meatiness follows through on the palate but it is smooth and surprisingly rich still. Elegant and scented on the mid palate. With time, more peppery and a touch of coffee. A final grip shows it is not over yet. (JH) (3/2010)
A light earthy nose, moderate definition, cedar, cigar box, rather dusty in fact but not inoffensive. The palate is medium-bodied with light raspberry leaf, cedar, tobacco and a touch of black pepper, a little sharpness coming in towards the finish, nice weight although it runs out of puff towards the finish. Still, there is a sense of grace and elegance here. Moderate length. (NM) (7/2010)
Stored on its side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
