You could tell as soon as the cork was pulled that this was going to be spectacular - textbook ripe rustic nose, with cedar and leather notes distinguishable. Remarkable colour for a 50-yr old. Quite savoury early palate before some fruit emerges and long but brittle graphite finish. Beautifully poised claret. I loved this.

And that it's either so expensive or so hit and miss (at least in my limited experience)
