Notes from Andrew Caillard (MW)
Medium deep colour. Musky plum raspberry aromas. Sweet musky plummy flavours, fine boney dry tannins but lovely juicy fruit flavours. Finishes long and sweet and minerally. Now. 88 points.
Time of release
After debuting with the fantastic 2004, this one exhibits even more of the classic raspberry notes of grenache, followed by luxurious fruit and earthiness; a fabulous follow-up with probably superior longevity to the 04. Not comparable in style with any of its SA cousins. 14.5 percent alcohol/volume.
