Pam scored this wine: 94/100
Gorgeous silky wine! Pale garnet colour with complex and perfumed nose of earth, leather, cherry and subtle spice and fleeting sweet floral, perhaps violet. As this was an older vintage, I was a little afraid of it being past its prime - the reward of ageing did not disappoint. It showed beautifully with silky tannins, restrained fruit and bright acidity. The palate still has lots of cherry and strawberry fruit, some smoke, leather, mushroom. As with a fine Burgundy, everything is elusive and changes with each swirl of the glass. The wine is on the lighter side of medium with a beautiful long, dry finish.
