MARCH 2017 TASTING NOTES
Great inky red-black colour, complex blackberry, tarry aromas, with only slight hints of chewy tobacco bottle age. Full and rich on the palate. Still springy crunchy tannins in-between youth and maturity with the ripeness of fruit playing the leading role. Give this baby another decade before enjoying it with your best friends. One of James Halliday’s Top 100 Wines to cellar.
