Shipped and bottled by French & Foreign Wines Ltd. Deep polished redwood in colour; 60% opaque. Gentle but complex nose, herbs and spices, star anise and sweet cherries. Lovely balance on entry; sweet dusty cherry and the star anise yet with a delightful focusing acidity. A touch of pepper reveals some almost fully integrated tannins. Very tasty. Fabulous finish, big and full and very long. Given the cork was slightly loose when pulled this is in very fine form. 91/100. 16-Apr-16. Decanted 2 hours.
