an outstanding year! 

This unquestionably superb year took advantage of fine dry weather with warm temperatures and abundant sunshine from April to late July. A rather wet August followed by a beautiful month of September and early October led to ripe, concentrated grapes. This great vintage can be compared with such years as 2000, 2009, and 2010.

Tasting notes:

Dark colour
Expressive nose of black fruit and liquorice
Smooth, tasty, and round on the palate with powerful, soft tannin
Long aftertaste
Powerful, well-balanced wine with plenty of freshness
