this offers up an intense bouquet of cassis and blackberry fruits on the nose edged with gentle tones of very ripe herbs, spicy poppy seeds and fresh oak tones with a top note of dried red chili. This is more austere and structured than the Kirwan with more aggressive tannins. Still quite young and darker than many 1999's this seems to be quite somplete if not yet fully open and the quality really shines through on the long finish with it's nuanced chili and herb tones accenting the dark fruit. A lovely bottle in the making though the tannins need time to resolve themselve but judging from the nose and finish there is ample fruit. 2010-2020

Opened up and let air for about 30 minutes. At first, there was some leather like qualities that picked up on in the glass. On first taste there was evidence of ample fruit with mild acidity giving rise to a moderate finish. I found a nice balance of both fruit and some oak, but not overwhelming. I will finish the bottle on the second night to see if any additional notes come to mind. A great wine for the vintage. Drink up (89 pts.)

A mature and balanced claret, with a floral nose and a lot of cedar, cigar box, and tar on the palate.
