A bottle kindly given to me on my birthday this year.

As reserves go this is top tier. Although my experience is not comprehensive in this sector, I rank it second only to Q de la Rosa for a Reserve - the wine is young and raw as one would expect, but also remarkably smooth and suppable.

I doubt this would be significantly better or worse after a few years in bottle.

So, scored against other Reserves:

8-8
