Tasting Note:

Down 20% in volume from last year as the many very old vines on this property yielded a super-rich but limited crop, reducing the average yield to only 34hl/ha. Intense, dark ruby red; rich red berries on the nose, intermixed with raspberry, liquorice and vanilla. The palate is marked by considerable structure, a powerful meaty character with a concentrated, earthy complexity; the pure cherry and raspberry fruit is intense and rich, while tannins are very smooth, yet firm. Good balance and length on the finish.
