The deep colour of this wine is the portent of its intensity. The nose is tantalisingly fruity and full of promise. The cassis and blackberry aromas make this a taut wine on the whole, but pervaded by a certain softness. The palate is rounded and creamy, with velvety tannins, ripe fruit and a refreshing touch of acidity that creates a balanced whole, as well as delicate spices which evolve on the palate and lend unique character to this vintage. The finish is long and light as air.
