Russell Bevan's wines are outstanding but they can get expensive. This is expensive too, but half the price of his single vineyard releases. Purple in color with some ruby swirls. The nose has cassis, cedar, slight tobacco and spice. Young, of course with firm tannins. Wonderful lush texture. Lots of juicy cassis fruit with some graphite and char. Long finish. This is delicious now but will continue to improve for the next five to ten years and be good for ten to twenty after that. It will go well with roasts or heavier dishes.
