WS thought this 2009 vintage was one of the 100 best of the year. I have had many bottles. I want to like it but...the tannins are over the top. I think I've bought my last bottle. Here's an update. Opened the last bottle last night and decided to try to tame the tannins by decanting. Voila, within 30 minutes the effect went from harsh to drinkable. That's worth a few adjustments to the right of the decimal.

This is brilliant value for money. Soft and mouth-filling, very approachable with good structure.

Cherry-red pearls lie under lace; violet sky slinks past window glass.

Smooth, slightly jammy red that paired well with venison back strap done with an oregano, garlic and juniper berry rub. Bottle continues on to dessert of banana/coconut/dark chocolate 3 ingredient cookie. Enjoyed Thanksgiving 2017. Would definitely buy again. Found this gem when organizing my wine racks and dang glad I did.

2009 vintage. Quite acidic. Heavy tannins. Didn't age as well as expected.
