Very fine nose with lovely herbal and savory aromas accenting the sweet baking spice nose that is slightly cool and compressed. There is lovely balance on the palate, with real richness of ripe fruit, and no baby fat which the 2007 still retains. The feeling here is cool and pretty Cabernet fruit, bringing along that suggestion of herbaceousness from the nose, as it yields to a ripe fruit-driven finish. Needs a bit of time but this has everything in the right place. 92pts

Very fine on the nose, with an early sweet baking spice note followed by crisp blackcurrant fruit, lovely dried herb and almost floral nuances. On the palate, this is a bit reserved with a slightly cool and compressed feel, but lovely balance that shows real richness of ripe fruit. There’s no baby fat here, it’s all sleek, cool and pretty Cabernet fruit in the black cherry/blackcurrant end of the register, bringing a suggestion of herbaceousness to the moderately long finish. 91 points

Dense, rich and extracted, this succeeds with a potent mix of dried currant, mineral, cedar, tobacco and roasted herb notes, as such drying out.

Dark, rich and extracted, this wine has aromas of cassis, black cherry and currants. Balanced oak nuances add both a sweetness and roundness to this aromatic and powerful wine. Extraordinarily complex, while amazingly rich and smooth in the mouth, this wine offers superb richness and balance, and builds in intensity.
