The initial ruby red gradually shades into warmer, less intense shades as the wine ages. The faintly tousled woodland fragrances of the wine's first year mature with aging into a complex, elegant bouquet proffering distinct whiffs of violets that fuse well with the tertiary notes of spiciness contributed by cask conditioning. On the palate, the wine is warm and beautifully poised, with a restrained background note of plums and an elegant hint of oak.
Best for money you pay!
It appears the wine had gone bad; corked.
