Dark purple. Spicy and racy and with real energy. Dry finish but lovely five-spice notes. very characteristic of the vineyard. Maybe you could even drink this with food now?

Deep purple-crimson, even after five years. It is explosively rich and decadent, with oceans of sumptuous black fruits which have soaked up the new and used French oak, and carry the alcohol with contemptuous ease. The grapes were picked early each morning between March 9 and March 13, after the heatwave had started, but before its conclusion. Each block was separately made and matured, and the final blend is not made until shortly before bottling.
