"Delicate and perfumed nose. Black currant, cherry aromas with sandalwood, cedar and earthy notes. Will evolve grandly. Rich texture, full-bodied from its rounded tannins. Ripe red fruits, sweet spices and toasted almonds. Very long aftertaste."
"On the nose, hints of pipe tobacco & some lovely toasty notes. Blackcurrant & damson, moving into some boozy stewed red fruit. Licorice & sweet vanilla from subtle oak layers. Fruity & warming with decent acidity tying everything together & suggesting there's plenty of life left. Full bodied & dry with great length."
"93 Points- Wine & Spirits. This is a wine that takes time to unfold, starting out deeply toasty and even tannic, getting brighter and more refined as it opens. Never does the flavor come across as fruity; instead, the flavor is so deeply savory it brings to mind brioche spread with foie gras. A blend of Obaideh and Merwah."
