Deep crimson. Low key but well mannered nose. Thick, dry and clarety. Rather fine and serious and contained and compact. Yes! This one should run and run - real concentration and density. Lift and excitement.

Deep and plummy; a hefty, rich bouquet and flavour of prunes and figs. Seems rather sweet, yet elegant. Lovely wine.

A moderate colour. Quite an unusual, very tertiary nose, with aromas of cabbage, cod liver oil and a hint of toffee. A very harmonious palate on entry, with gentle, spicy tannins through the midpalate. A lovely texture, elegant rather than lush, balanced and very fluid. The tannins becomes more apparent on the finish. It seems much less complex and developed on the palate than the nose would suggest, and there are still some notes of black fruits. A moderate length. Drinking now. Very good.
