(tasted from cask) Deep red. Black raspberry and minerals dominate the nose. Juicy and penetrating, with lively floral and peppery high notes. More tightly wound than the preceding samples, and very firmly structured for 2006. Finishes very long and juicy, with the peppery quality repeating.
Mid crimson. Very lively. Racy. More delicate and sinewy than most. Very fluid.
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021
