2005 VINTAGE

Quite a big wine, you can smell the terroir as well as the fruit. Plenty going on here. Big, ripe, generous claret, judiciously oaked, lush sweet fruit and good finish. Jolly good.

90 Dark ruby in color. Aromas of black licorice, coffee and currant follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Best after 2011. 9,580 cases made. –JS
92 A wine that enfolds you with its generous fruit, soft, ripe blackberry flavors, and dark plum skin tannins. All these juicy characters are shaped by lively, fresh acidity and superripe tannins.
