"Slightly pinkish mid garnet, even a slight (and early?) orange tinge. Gentle, sweet and perfumed. Red fruit, just a touch of leather. Certainly has developed notes. Some tea and floral notes. Delicate and enchanting. Sweet cherry, tobacco leaf. So complex and difficult to describe. After all that fragrance, the density and concentration is a surprise. Much more youthful on the palate. Really dense, fine but grainy tannins. Mouthwatering finish and long dry aftertaste. Oak very well hidden and great fresh kick on the finish. An hour later and after a bite of bread and prosciutto: sweet red fruit. Surprisingly soft and luscious. Alcohol well hidden. 18 Points/Drink 2012-2030" - Julia Harding MW,
