Tasting Notes:
tasted: February 16, 2014 , John Wilson Smith
5 stars "Color: deep; Nose: complex; Aromas: black berry; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: full-bodied; Finish: persistent; Overall: elegant; This proved to be an amazing bottle. It has aged wonderfully, and it strength (15%) is subtle. Consumed over two days (decanted - very necessary) this just got better and better. Complex mix of black fruits, dark plums and slightly sour cherries. Texture very refined. Tannins showing a little on day one, but day 2 had softened to a voluptuous silkiness, and a very long finish. Where a straight shiraz could have been too domineering, the grenache imparted a delicacy to the mix. Very memorable!" Best 2014-
