Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Avery rustic, firm and marginally dirty wine with an earthy, farmyard-like aroma of cassis and mulberries, cedar and vanilla-Its meaty, menthol like palate of dark plums and dark olives overlies a firm backbone, finishing long and savoury-Lacks brightness and freshness.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Lean, high acid style with a dusty herbal note to its delicate aromas of dark berries, plums and vanilla oak. Fine and supple, smooth and creamy, its rather polished palate of small berry fruits culminates in a firm, assertive finish of slightly green-edged tannins. Should develop well over medium term.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet is distinctly savoury, with leafy cedary aromas. The palate is concentrated, with savoury chocolate and berry fruit, and slightly less assertive tannins than are present in the upcoming '98 release.
