Deep purple-crimson; an outstanding vintage for Blackwell with a wonderful mix of intense black and red berry fruits licorice and mocha oak; good as the flavours are so is the tapestry of the texture of the wine finely worked and balanced.

Plenty of roast coconut oak blackberry (nip) the perfume of lemon zest and flowers with a surprisingly juicy palate given the brooding density the nose might suggest - it's more cherries with fresh acidity (not too forced either) and plenty of powdery tannins. You'd think it might cellar pretty well too. Large scale robust and full-flavoured but not leaden. An impressive wine within its style.

The intense and concentrated bouquet is dominated by Provencal herbs creamy black fruit and soft Greek olive. Dense and powerful on entry with considerable polish and finesse. Black cherry notes mingle with hints of cocoa and tapenade on a mouth-filling framework. Medium-full bodied but never heavy or ponderous with rich flavors that continue on to a fruit-filled delicately tannic finish that ends on a whispered note of chocolate. This is a worthy followup to the top selling 2008 with that vintage's impeccable sense of balance if a bit more weight. Simply delicious. Enjoy 2012-2024.
