96 points for Maiden, then how high should I rate the Estate wine? Young, lifted, vibrant with edges - a think which I like - dry, cedary and mineral. Tasted together with the incredible Ornellaia 2004 this was less sweet, with less body, less round (i.e. had some edges: more tannic) but more elegant. Remarkable wine of very high quality.
Not as dense as the Ornellaia but equally complex if somewhat more angular. However some prefered this thanks to its complexity and elegance. Complex nose of graphite, anise, plum, dark berry fruit, chocolate and hints of cedar. Medium to full-bodied with firm tannins, bright fruit and med+ acidity. Very long. Will reward further aging.
