A dark red/brown tawny, with a surprisingly active nose of cinnamon and spices. Full bodied, almost chocolatey. tannins so smooth as almost absent. Long finish

Initially concerned about the nose on the cork but actually the wine was very open, well balanced with a rich mouth feel and a long finish.

has become an outstanding wine. At 7 years it's showing it's depth. Richer yellow not yet gold, a floral nose which is no longer subtle as I described at my last tasting in 2007. A freshness with good balance still with a hint of sweet apple perhaps even a touch of apricot. Long finish. Beautifully paired with a salad of salmon and quinoa.

Light clear ruby colour, nose roses and slight reductive element. Palate quite tight early but opened up after 1 hour. Gamey mushroomy blackberry rose elements with decent balance and balanced acid. Finishes well with pleasant aftertaste.

Drunk July 2010. Ruby red, not as dark as I had expected. A nose of savoury meats. Complex palate, well balanced with pronounced tannins perhaps still needing a couple of years. Lovely long finish. A beautiful wine. Looking forward to tasting it again over the next few years.
