Appearance: Narrow pale ruby rim (hint of garnet), deep ruby core, long legs
Nose: Same as 2004 but with more sweet spice aromas of vanilla, oak, slightly jammy and cooked fruit
Palate: Full bodied, dry, robust, medium + level of ripe tannins, medium acidity, concentrated fruitiness, black fruit, black currant, black cherries, oak, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla. Well integrated oak and a long lingering finish.
Conclusion: A thick, concentrated, jammy, potent red wine supported by good levels of acidity, ample tannins. Needs more ageing. (Will improve for 4 – 5 years, Can keep 4- 5) Drinking well now. Can keep 8 – 10 years
