Pam scored this wine: 96/100
Fabulous deep inky purple after 19 years! Beautiful and still fruit forward with fresh blackberry, cassis, licorice, spice and a hint of eucalyptus all without being overly jammy. The palate delivers dense concentration with integrated fruit and tertiary flavours of dark berries, liquorice, leather, spice, soft tannins and enough acidity to make it food friendly despite the 15% alcohol level. Long, smooth, dry and juicy finish with a bit of heat.
