Winemaker's Notes:

Since its inaugural release in 1979 this piece of liquid history has become one of the worlds' most sought after wine collectables. This 2006 vintage is showing a heady mix of capsicum, mint and pepper aromas; a palate of spice, licorice and berry fruit characters, with hints of dusty oak and fine grained tannins.
