With a dense ruby/purple color is followed by a pure nose of mulberries, cherry liqueur and spring flowers, but no hint of oak, this full-bodied, opulent, rich beauty exhibits impressive purity, texture, richness and length. Not as structured or tannic as
A wine that has a lovely depth of fruit and balance for the vintage, with blackberry, licorice and dark-chocolate character. Full and very silky. Very impressive. What a wonderful wine for the vintage. Full of finesse. Better in 2016.
Offers a core of crushed plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit, held together by anise, fruitcake and bergamot notes. A hint of rooibos tea courses through the finish. Delivers a gorgeous mouthfeel, without any of the vintages taut structure. Best from 2
Fresh dark fruit on the nose. Not very expressive just now. But lithe and supple on the palate and nicely fluid to a long fresh finish. Drinkability at last. Julia Harding MW
Tight at the moment, with its earth, truffle, spice, espresso, chocolate and cherry notes barely coming to the surface. On the palate, dusty tannins, plums and cocoa carry through to the silky, soft, supple, sweet, fruit filled finish. This bottle was tasted twice in the same week, from a pop and poured bottle and again, from a bottle that was decanted before serving. The decanted bottle showed much better.by jeff leve in 2014
