|Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Nov 21, 2013: Blind tasting NCSG Vintages pre-release. Deep garnet, complex nose showing fig, prune, rasin, cola, black licorice, oxo beef cubes, dark chocolate and wood spice. Full and sweet on the palate with raisin, fig, prune, chocolate dipped cherries, black licorice, black pepper and a long warm finish. Well balanced, drink now and over the next decade with blue cheese, dark chocolate or dried fruit and nuts.
