There is a great link here between the tannins, delicious red berry fruits and blackcurrants and the almost architectural structure. The wine certainly has fine fruit, a great balance, very complete, finishing gently, ripe and soft.
93-95 Barrel sample. Huge black currant flavors, very ripe fruit, but also a great sense of balance, of proportion that give this wine both charm and impressiveness. It's going to age seriously, and well.
92–94. Barrel sample. This wine is heavily influenced by ample new-wood aging. It’s deliciously juicy with black currant and plum fruits balanced by swathes of refreshing acidity at the end.
92-94 A luxurious wine, acidity and sweet plum fruits rolling together into a fine, beautiful structure. It has toughness, to be sure, while it is the glamorous surface that is immediately attractive.
