Offers a mouthfilling, brambly feel, with dark plum, steeped blackberry and mulled boysenberry fruit at the core, backed by anise, singed mesquite and black tea notes that give the finish a perfumy caste. Has depth and power but stays remarkably refined. Best from 2016 through 2030. – JM

A heady, exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of blackberry liqueur, cherry-cola, Indian spices and potpourri. Shows excellent clarity and depth in the mouth, offering potent black and blue fruit flavors and suggestions of spicecake and candied flowers. Finishes sweet, smoky and extremely long, with silky tannins adding grip. This wine transcends its vintage.

Very dark crimson. Though not that deep at the rim. Sweet, rich with a hint of bitter chocolate - not what I expect from Hermitage! Very ripe indeed. Really opulent. Rather disconcerting.

Really opulent. Rather disconcerting. The richness of the fruit almost totally obscures the tannin. A very strong statement. You could almost drink it now! 17.5/20
