Tasting Notes

Score: 100Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette, July 2008

This wine reveals notes of toasty vanilla and espresso in addition to Asian spices, mocha, pepper, blackberries, creosote, and roasted meats. The exotic perfume is followed by a wine with phenomenal intensity, sweet, well-integrated tannin, huge body, and loads of concentrated fruit. It is a tour de force in winemaking. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025.

Score: 100Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (147), June 2003

Score: 100Robert Parker, Wine Buyers Guide (6), December 2002

Exceptionally deep crimson. Very sweet and intense on the nose. Heady, obviously oaky, but like an exotic, irresistible tincture. Round and worked and ultimately perhaps very slightly soulless but it is designed to give pleasure and it does. The tannins are very well managed. Round and broad but furled for the future. Drink 2009-2021. Date tasted 14th Jun 05.
