    Mahogany red. Dark fruit aromas continue on the palate with  intense concentration of ripe black fruit, dried fruit, ripe toffee sweetness, supple black velvety and powdery tannins with hints of smoky oak. The big crunchy redcurrant acidity - really mouth-wrenchingly extracted, balances the fruit and gives freshness leaving with the pretty,  sweetly-ripe fruit in the background keeping things interesting. Big, classic, nicely balanced.

    Darker, mahogany red.  This wine feels so much much younger than 2007 and shows what appears to be a more modern profile starting with its aromas smoky tea and opening out to reveal sweet ripe black chocolate fruit, ripe and almost jammy extracted fruit, supple charm carried by fresh acidity to a lovely mouthwatering finish. The big tannins are still quite youthful and there is lots of new oak evident on the finish still. It's really quite lovely with fresh energy and plenty of fruit to show. A nice combination of modern, gently Parker-y oomph and plenty of moderately old-school new oak playing through.
