Nose of black plum, smoke, hint of violets, horse saddle, black mushroom, smoke, bramble.

Lots of tannin on the palate, but soft and supple. Similar flavours as the nose, with a long finish. A lot going on here.

Ten years after harvest, this wine is still showing complexity, and I think could continue on. Great value, if you can hold.

Tasted December 2016.
