Inky dark with little sign of bricking. Absolutely wondeful nose with waves of aromas including ripe dark fruit, anise, vanilla bean, violets and cigar box. Dense palate packed with fine tannin and rich dark fruit, yet balanced and silky. This lives up to its reputation. Drink or hold for as long as you like. (96 Superb wine)
Deep red colour with little fade at the rim - unbelievable for a 25 year old wine. Spectacular nose of blackberry and cassis with secondary notes of dried flowers and earth. Full bodied and still quite structured, it is hard to believe, but I would say this wine is still on the rise and could possibly improve over the next 5 years. Certainly there are no signs of fading. Tastes of dark fruits dominate but are joined by a huge array of subtle nuances that include baking spices, vanilla, pepper, earth and many more. Tremendous complexity. The finish is long and satisfying with a juicy acidity. www.advinetures.ca
