This is an amazing wine. It is still young but like most of Russell Bevan's red wines, this is already drinking well. As an aside, it's funny how Bevan's white wines take longer to be ready than his reds. Inky purple in color with a ruby rim. The nose is gorgeous with cassis, some pencil lead and cedar. On the palate, a big and bold wine but not rough. Lots of cassis fruit with depth. Just delicious. I think a couple years brings out that depth a bit and this gets to be a perfect score. Right now its like a bottomless pit. Long finish. At the same time, this wine has the acidity to work well with food. Absolutely fantastic.
