16 months since my Spectator Cakebread Lunch tasting note (after which I bought 6), and this wine has developed well. Concentrated juicy plum and dry cherry fruit, integrated cedar and smoke with a dash of liquorice/spice in the background. Racey, elegant and Bordeaux-like. Only a touch of heat at the back of the throat betrays the 14.5%. Drinking nicely now, but feel another couple of years will see yet further improvement. Excellent - 91+?+
