At 13 years old from magnum. A real wood-smoke and violets nose. Increasingly sweet and cherry-ish as you leave it in the glass. Then you get raspberries and a certain opulence. Real structure on the palate, with very juicy fruit. The tannins are so ripe and soft now. Really lines the mouth with blackcurranty fruit and keeps its freshness all the way to the finish. Unexpectedly, it is also charming. The concentration of fruit and acidity is the key here. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 93
