The Wines

whole bunch fermentation, aged 8-15 year oak 18 months, fined, filtered

2003 ()

Bouquet - berries and tar mix, with an earthy, meaty undertone. Fruit is stretched, and the noticeable tannins dry it towards the finish. Tarry finish. Texture impact is dry. "Just too much heat in 2003," S.Villano. Dec 2005

2002

quite warm nose; fruit has structure around it. Fair.

2001

peppery black fruit, earthy aromas; cool, upright texture - spiced fruit, tarry, chewy end. Length OK. Punchy style, can soften by 2005. 2010/12

2000

clear black fruit jam nose; compact, soft berried fruit, then becomes pebbly, some funky tannins. Authentic. Going well. 2008/09
