The texture of this wine makes an instantaneous impression, which is exquisite, making the moderate alcohol seem even lower than it is. This is an old money aristocrat, elegantly unfurling layer after layer of red and black fruits, licorice and spice on the prodigiously long palate. The best Eileen since 71.

Winery Tasting Notes
Youthful deep brooding dark colour, belying its age.
Highly complex aromas of chocolate, meat, leather, black olive, fresh blueberry and persimmon flesh. Underlying spicy French oak and savoury, smoky notes add to this fragrant wine.
A powerful dense wine exhibiting layers of texture and flavour resulting in a wine of great persistance and balance. Dark chocolate, plum and ripe blueberry sit in harmonious balance with subtle French oak and silky fin tannins.
