Great combination of herbs, mint and redcurrant bouquet. Powerful on the palate, complex blackberry characters, well structured and very clean on the finish. Ideal with grilled red meat. Drink 2006-09.
Smoky, unripe grapefruit, fresh. A lovely effort, has layers of fresh, crisp fruit, superbly balanced, long in flavour, fabulous. Drink 2008-14.
