2007 ()

quite a full red robe; scented, Pez sweets, peony and rose aroma – the fruit in it red plum with a little herbal air. The palate fruit is round, and laced from early on with helpful tannin. It extends well, ends with a bit of milk chocolate and tar in it. Drink esp from 2009 to allow the nose to open more, and for the palate to integrate and settle. Some late acidity shows that it will run to 2011-12. June 2008
