Tasting Notes

In contrast to the general style of the vintage, this is still aromatically austere though with coaxing, reveals wonderfully complex aromas of a simply incredible array of black fruits, earth, spice, crushed herbs and notes of chocolate with flavors that are huge but fine, powerful but subtle and rich yet detailed with a stupendously long finish that offers intense minerality. This is genuinely stunning juice and not to be missed if you have the chance. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes.

Deeper colour than the 2002 served alongside. More youthful and drier. This is serious rather than charming stuff at the moment with a distinctly green vegy topnote on some extremely rich and slightly dusty fruit. Work in progress but it will surely have a very long life.
