John Wade at his best. A wine of great richness and intensity, dense cassis (blackcurrant) on nose and palate, excellent depth of fruit, impeccable oak treatment provides firm but very fine tannins, very good length. It is a wine which combines power and elegance. It is in balance now and can be enjoyed immediately, though it is made with cellaring specifically in mind and bottle maturation will add further complexities and nuances.
Best after 7-10 years. With correct cellaring should have extended life of at least 25 years.
