Can only agree with trufflehunter. Well past peak, still a very nice bouquet but disappointingly virtually nothing for the palate only a hint at what was.

2 bottles from same OWC drank with BGA. Noted that WS had this vintage down as way below average. Can't agree I'm afraid, this is an excellent wine, bouquet not noticeably powerful but the fruits are still there. On taste unbelievable balance of fruit and acidity, plenty of grip and colour, you would never guess this wines age, it is right in the drinking window and I would guess has plenty of time left yet, no need to drink up at all. An absolute pleasure to experience.
Not sure if this was a storage issue. Big at 15% alcohol, no nose on opening and even after an hour nothing to reveal. Smooth but almost completely void of acidity to give any bite, by the end of the evening a little fruit emerged but this was going nowhere and had no character to reveal. A big disappointment.
I agree with the drinking window. Opened one bottle and tasted it two days running. Little changed. Still too young good colour and only slight nose, rather sweet. A good mouthfeel and a very pronounced caramel finish. Good potential. Leave until 2016 or 2017 to try again.
