Ratings and Tasting Notes:

WA=89+ Although slightly austere and closed the day I tasted it, the 2008 La Carre reveals a dense ruby/purple colour along with notes of toasty oak, liquorice, black currants and crushed rocks as well as impressive richness. It requires 2-3 years of cellaring and should last 15 or more.

AG=89 Medium ruby-red. Cool aromas of blackberry, mint and crushed rock. Surprisingly pliant, sweet and easygoing following the nose, with liquorice and mint notes perking up the dark berry flavours. This very ripe, lush wine seems almost ready to start drinking.

WS=88 This fleshy red offers ripe blueberry and cola flavours that are broad and slightly sweet, in a generous texture, with just enough tannin for grip. This big, round wine has more personality than structure. Drink now through 2015.
