2007 – Fully evolved garnet appearance. Briny notes on the palate with tangy plum sauce, ripe berries and balsamic notes. The wine is plush, seamless, and well-rounded with a long, complex finish that still offers drinking pleasure.
2011 – A clear step-up from Rhinofields, with more weight and softness and almost no greenness. Black fruit, coffee, wood smoke and liquorice, with subtle tertiary earthy complexity manifesting in truffle and leather. The palate is dense, but softening at the edges, and starting to look like a seamless winter fireside companion. At peak, and safe for short term keeping.
