The WineFront review below says it all - "A wine for generations. Remarkable."
The Wine Front – Beautiful fragrance of flowers and liquorice root/sarsaparilla, spice, cherry and dried mint. Medium bodied, fleshy and well-rounded, red cherries and strawberry shot with spice and perfume, new leather and sweet herbs, layered with fine almost silty tannin, clean fresh berry acidity, and a long and smooth tea-laced finish of impeccable length. Classic. Wonderful wine.
