Tasting Notes

Dark red. Ineffably aromatic raspberry and kirsch aromas of great nobility. Sweet, silky and floral; lovely harmonious acidity gives the fruit an extraordinary inner-mouth perfume. A hugely ripe wine of almost confectionary sweetness that nonetheless comes across as graceful and unforced. Very long, powerful finish features firm tannins drowned in fruit. Tasted March 1999.
