Time of release
Familiar deep magenta colour; sweet, briary, red berries and spice to the nose and palate. Easily recognised as another great "Georgias". Very drinkable now, plus excellent cellaring prospects. 15.5% alcohol.

Medium colour. Roasted coffee/ chocolate. Sweet concentrated wine with roasted coffee/ herb garden/ meaty flavours and peppery alcohol notes, fine dense chalky firm tannins. Finishes minerally and long. This has always been a lovely wine. A great vintage for Jasper Hill (I scored it 100 points in another tasting a while back but this time 1997 Emilys eclipses this). Now-2015. 96 points.

Medium deep colour. Developed recurrant, walnutty, iodine, salty liquorice aromas and flavours, supple looseknit tannins and plenty of savoury notes. Finishes chalky, al-dente firm with good flavour length and some mineral notes. Some tertiary tobacco, earthy notes pervading through. Possible a touch stale. Now - 2022 - 92 points

Medium deep crimson. Intense fully mature dark chocolate, roasted chestnut, roasted walnut sous bois aromas. Generous and bouyant with rich smooth dark chocolate mocha leafy flavours, and plentiful velvetine tannins. Finishes chocolaty firm with lovely persistence of fruit. A very expressive wine with vigour and suppleness. A lovely vintage. 15.5% Alc 96 points Now -2030
