This estate has a very attractive style with the wines offering very immediate, up-front appeal. At first nose, you'll welcome the ripe, expressive red fruits and once in the mouth you'll be impressed by the poise and structure that's on offer here. A lovely, vibrant wine.

Ruby-red. Precise aromas of black and red berries, mocha and bitter chocolate, along with faint liqueur-like and meaty elements. Sweet and lush in the mouth, with good volume but also noteworthy clarity of flavor. Finishes with big, spreading, palate-coating tannins and very good length.

A winner, the dark plum/ruby/purple-colored 2000 exhibits aromas of smoke, herbs, black fruits, licorice, and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, expansive, and layered, it is a candidate for 10-12 years of evolution.

Lovely plummy wine, with lots of chocolate and vanilla character. Medium-bodied, with full and round soft tannins and a long finish. Much better than from barrel. Delicious. Best after 2005. 7,250 cases made.
