Nose is smokey and earthy, lots of white currants and dried sage. Silky texture on entry, sweet and ripe fruit. The tannins are gentle, and dry and provide focus to the mid-palate. Long sweet, fruity finish. Perhaps lacking a little acidity for perfection, nevertheless this is fine and elegant. 90-92. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
