WS95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
A powerful wonderfully toned red. Like a great javelin-thrower. Lovely mineral berry and violet aromas with hints of new oak. Full-bodied with big yet silky tannins and a long long finish. Best after 2010. 3000 cases... A powerful wonderfully toned red. Like a great javelin-thrower. Lovely mineral berry and violet aromas with hints of new oak.

A fine offering the 1998 has closed down but there is no doubting its fabulous potential. The color is a dense purple. The wine reveals high tannin huge body and classy black fruits intermixed with minerals spice box... A fine offering the 1998 has closed down but there is no doubting its fabulous potential. The color is a dense purple. The wine reveals high tannin huge body and classy black fruits intermixed with minerals spice box cedar and tobacco. A long persistent tannic finish gives this majestic effort a closed but formidable personality. Patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.
