Full red-purple; full cassis/blackberry/mulberry aromas lead into a sweet, ripe and plush palate with nice chewy tannins and positive oak. Outstanding for the vintage. Tasted as a tank sample shortly before bottling. Drink to 2012.

Opaque, almost black in colour but starting to brick at the rim.... Impressive nose of cassis and plums with distinct cedar and cigar box notes. On the palate the fruit is more prominent but this is no fruit bomb...nice structure and clearly built to last with a 30+ sec finish. This is only entering its prime and will drink well for 10+ years. Very good Drink in the next 1 to 5 years
