Tasting Notes

Medium-depth ruby with the faintest tints of purple, a colour that is pale relative to most cabernets of its age. The bouquet is mellow and complex, subtle and well-rounded, with great harmony of mossy undergrowth aromas with cedar and tobacco and mellow red and blue fruits. There is a delicious fruit sweetness at the heart of the wine, the tannins fine and supple and perfectly judged to cleanse and dry the finish and add to its prodigious length. Great drinking already and for many years to come. A beautiful wine. (Includes small proportions of petit verdot and cabernet franc). Huon Hooke
