Tasting Notes

Damsons and forest fruits on the nose, on the palate this is dense, brooding and concentrated, with high tannins and a big sign up saying ?give me time!?. The muscular frame of La Mission is there but perhaps with less square shoulders this time. We also detect extra lift and polish this year giving it a little more elegance. As always, a fascinating contrast to its sibling. Drink 2020-2035+ (51CS :43M :6CF)

Reviews & Scores

Bright and perfumed, with mineral, hot stone, fresh currant and blackberry on the nose. Full-bodied, with firm, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Layered, chewy and structured. Solid for the vintage. - 91-94 points
