|Date tasted:||28 September 2009|
|Price when tasted:||£31.10|
Almost equal quantities of Malbec and Merlot (34% and 32% respectively) balanced by the two Cabernets. This has great intensity and ripeness, lifted by a floral freshness. Firm, serious and well-knit from 12 months in new and used French oak.
Intense and seductive. Fresh, full-bodied. Integrated tannins, some sweet vanilla, tobacco notes. Long and elegant finish. Drink from 2008. (15.5 points)
