Sunday, September 18, 2005 - Colour - Deep ruby red
Aroma - Red fruits, violets, chocolate and spicy oak.
Palate - on entry light pure and clean, fattening out to dark fruit and tannic mid-palate that holds through to the finish. The fruit in this wine, with enough brambles to remind you that it is burgundy, is so closely integrated to the tannin profile it is difficult to separate the fruit from the tannins. This results in a light to medium structured wine rather then a more disjointed fuller bodied wine one may have expected with so firm tannins. Because of the balance I think this will age well.
