Exceptional. Rich, complex nose of (excellent quality). It is full bodied, fleshy wine, with good depth, and a very long, lightly tannic finish, tasting of black current, new oak, cherry, toast and tobacco. Best Marinus yet.
September 2006 Issue #113 & 114
A bouquet of black cherry, plum and cedar box. Black Cherry fruit is round and sweet with a peppery edge. Charred oak and mineral nuances linger in the dry, youthful finish.
