Again, the typical depth of colour is a give-away that this is an authoritative wine. Characterised by its usual complexity, with an almost creamy texture and floral perfume. Perfectly structured with silky tannins derived from both ripe grapes and new French oak. Lots of natural acidity, with an elegant, long finish. Excellent longevity but hard to resist now. 15.5% alc/vol
