Sunday, May 8, 2011 - Double decanted over two hours and enjoyed over the next three.
Deep maroon core with a bright ruby rim. Intense nose of red flowers, crushed raspberries, strawberry coulis, bright bing cherry, and sandalwood. The palate is rich and elegant with flavours of cherry skin, dark valrhona chocolate, red currant, and fine oak tannins.
Such an elegantly textured and expressive wine. Really well built, showing little signs of age, but definitely can be enjoyed now. 96-97.
