Cab Sauv, Merlot and Cab Franc

Finesse, enough power still but beautifully balanced from the bouquet through the palate to the aftertaste. A sophisticated elegant Bordeaux blend.

Good floral and toasted bacon bouquet. Less tannin than one hoped for so that the palate was sweet but lacking balance.

2009


Nebiolo

Complex bouquet of spice and black fruit, mint and black pepper. Dry full flavour, perfect pitch between the tannin and the fruit. Such a joy to drink.

Sophisticated elegant dry nose leading to a red cherry, spice and espresso palate. Is this superb expression of class Barbaresco already at its peak? It is claimed it is good for another 13 years!
