Tasting Notes:
Tasted just two days after bottling, this already had a lovely rich, warm and inviting nose. A little woody still but attractively so. Some good black fruit here, quite modern in style - Stef has been moving in this direction since the middle of the last decade.

Critic Reviews:
"Opaque ruby/purple colours (among the darkest of the 2011s) as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit, charcoal, garrigue and earthy notes... among the stars of the vintage" 91/100 (Wine Advocate)

'Dark crimson. Big broad and glossy on the nose. Lots of sweet, ripe fruit flavours nicely shoehorned into a suitable corset. Dry finish. Appetising though and with sufficient fruit in the middle.' 16/20 (Jancis Robinson MW)
