Opened my first bottle of this last night with our lamb risotto. Wow. Stood the bottle up the day before, but it was basically a pop and pour. The nose is incredible, floral, plum and spice. For the first couple of glasses the wine was all about the nose, bright plum and cherry flavours and acidity. Towards the end of the bottle it had gained weight and was all dark fruit. Beautiful mouthfeel and long finish and as outstanding as it was, I don't think it's done yet. I'll be holding my other bottles. 96 pts.

That’s a glowing review, especially as I’ve never seen you rate a wine so high
