(100% cabernet sauvignon) Saturated dark ruby to the rim. Tight, pure aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and spices. Superripe and large-scaled but rather closed today; a wine of great fullness, with powerful flavors of black raspberry, shoe polish, licorice, lead pencil, minerals and dark chocolate. Not quite as showy today as the Cariad, but this big boy may ultimately be the greater wine. Finishes with chewy, ripe tannins and superb persistence.
