Four Stars - Raymond Chan "The nose is soft and elegantly concentrated with ripe aromas of dark-red and black plum fruit entwined with subtle blackcurrant and herb notes. This has good depth and unfolds lifted florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich, sweet and juicy with up-front, primary fruit flavours of dark-red plums and redcurrants, with red liquorice notes. Soft-textured, supple tannins underline the fruit and the wine carries to a well-packed, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, sweet and juicy, primary-fruited Bordeaux red with dark-red and black plum fruit on a supple palate."
