This has power to burn, yet is elegant from start to finish.

 

There are ripples of muscle interspersed with the calm of contentment; the fruit is foremost, but oak and tannins all play an important role in this classy wine. 

All the corks used have been of high quality, perfectly inserted, and should allow the wines to complete their journey.
