Grapes that made this wine were wind dried for five months. The wine then spent four years in barrel and one extra year in bottle prior to release. This 450 case production is drinking spectacularly well but will keep getting better and can be enjoyed for another twenty years. The wine is gorgeous, full bodied, pure, layered and long with sweet black fruits, country herbs and chocolate vie for attention on the nose. Palate is rich and opulent matched with elegance and finesse. The finish is gloriously long and smooth and just goes on and on. I had the wine with some figs and blue stilton cheese and I went straight to heaven. I only have about ten cases of the vintage available and red wine does not get better. Enjoy!
