Very structured. Superattractive aromas of plum, blueberry and pressed flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Layers and layers of ripe fruit, with everything in beautiful proportions. Almost a replay of the 1997, which scored 98 points. 2,200 cases made.

Drink 1.5 liter bottle which was superb! Decanted around 90 minutes before serving. Great aroma and smooth initially. About 2-3 hours after opening it had improved further and was silky to taste. Everyone enjoyed this wine. I think it will improve still with age and look forward to opening more in the future.
