Attractive red colour, firm centre and pale rim. Empty nose. Nice body and texture, quite thick. Sweet and attractive palate, lots of late red cherry and gentle acidity. Warm, spicy and fruity finish of great length. 88/100. 13-Jun-12. Decanted 1 hour.

S57: glorious red, 40% opaque. Nose of strawberry and cherry. Big and unctuous. Gentle. A hint of acridity mid-palate, but thoroughly excellent. Big and long.
