Time of release
A classic "Georgias" in every respect, from its depth of vibrant colour, through its typical sweet red berry/tar/mocha aromas, to its complex palate and powerful yet supple tannins. Great balance and drinkability, although very suitable for cellaring around 15 years. 15.5% alcohol.
Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW - August 2007
Deep colour. Mint chocolate/ brambly aromas with touches of aniseed. Well concentrated wine with mint chocolate flavours and peppery alcohol, fine bristling dry tannins. Finishes firm and chocolaty. Still quite elemental. Needs more time. 2010-2025. 88 points.

Medium deep crimson. Fresh dark chocolate, mocha, dark cherry aromas with hints of polished leather and spice. Generous wine with deep set dark chocolate, mocha dark cherry flavours, plenty of mid palate richness, fine sinewy slightly leafy textures and integrated acidity. Finishes long and sweet. Very attractive wine with complexity and voice of place. 15.5% Alc 94 points Now- 2030
