Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

review

Deep, ruby-red, faintly lighter on edge. The bouquet is elegantly presented, toasty oak penetrating vanilla, nutmeg and cedar underlying cassis, blackberries, plums and violet. Full-bodied, succulent aromas of cassis, blackberries and plums melded with a hint of mint and violet; cedar and spice fill with palate with breadth. The fruit is vibrant and succulent with excellent acid balance and depth. Fine-grained oak detail presents a stylish, smooth mouthfeel that lends a long finish. This poise structured red blend with elegance and power shows succulent fruit, stylish oak and layers. Match with venison and ribeye steak over the next 8+ years.

review

A splendid rendition showing enticing aromas of blackcurrant, dark plum, spicy oak, olive and floral, leading to a concentrated palate exhibiting excellent weight and depth. Refined and classically structured by fine chalky tannins, finishing impressively long and elegant. At its best: now to 2035.
