"Intoxicating nose of crushed flowers, dark earth, prune and wild herbs. The palate is so elegant yet rich and concentrated with flavours of morello cherry, mineral, baking spice and sweet almond. A silk thread of acidity runs through soft, supple tannins followed by a red berry infused finish. Perfectly balanced with a defined beginning, middle and long finish. An elegant and slightly leaner version of the 2004."
