The scents of blueberries and spice on the bouquet weren't apparent on the rather plane palate of plums, which ended a little sour edged and short. Whilst the fruit did seem fresh, it would have benefited from more pronounced acid. The wine finished with grainy tannins. A disappointing experience for a wine with such a reputation (and a moderate price) - 89.
