Evolves to black olive and hints of asphalt. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and tangy rich fruit. It really grabs hold of you and wants to tell you it¿s special. Loads of ripe tannins too. Big and structured. Turns to tapenade. - – JS

A riveting wine pure elegant but at the same time extremely powerful and concentrated with stunning texture opulence and density the tannins are abundant and the wine certainly in need of a decade of cellaring. Fabulous creme de cassis and cherry liqueur notes are intertwined with hints of licorice truffle and graphite. Full and rich but still in an infantile state of development this wine needs to be cellared for 10 years but should keep for five decades or more. This 2009 is absolutely profound.

The wine is incredibly concentrated, wth layer after layer of perfectly ripe, silky, velvet drenched fruit. The wine is powerful, sensuous, long and even though it is still young, there is no doubt about its future legendary status.

Wonderful aromas of crushed blackberries and blueberries and spices. Rose petals. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. Beautiful layers of tannins, with hints of acidity. Best after 2017.

It remains remarkably youthful on the nose, rendering the brilliant 2010 a bit introverted by comparison. This comes racing out of the blocks with ebullient red cherries, crushed strawberry and raspberry fruit, touches of dried rose petal and melted tar. With aeration there is just a touch of liquorish. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin that belies the arching structure underneath. It manages to retain awesome power and yet deliver a refined finish that feels long and tender. Stunning. -- Neal Martin
