Tasting Notes

Showing better than it did from cask, this soft, generous, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2007 exhibits sweet black currant fruit intermixed with cedar, roasted herbs, and subtle smoke. Round, hedonistic, and already complex, this blend of 73.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26.5% Merlot should drink well for 12-15 years. Drink 2010-2025.

A very deep purple, garnet core. The nose is very intense with black fruits, sous-bois, very savoury fruits. Very lifted, developing touches of black cracked pepper and a hint of sea salt. The palate is medium-bodied, perhaps a little coarse with a slight burnt quality on the finish. A peculiar showing for Duhart – interesting and distinctive but lacking its usual breeding. This is disappointing. Tasted April 2008.

A bit angular, with licorice, tobacco and berry character. Tar too. Medium-to-full body, firm tannins and a medium finish. Slightly hollow midpalate

Deep ruby. Strong mineral element on the nose, which also shows some ripe fruit. Round and flattering. Quite a fruit bomb! Very supple with pretty refined fruit. This could be a good buy…for early drinking. Drink 2011-18

(a 73.5/26.5 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Good deep ruby-red. Crushed cassis, licorice, mint and violet on the rather cool nose. Then fairly round and moderately sweet in the middle palate, but with a slightly peppery quality to the dark berry, mineral and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes with surprising subtle persistence and slightly edgy tannins.

Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, June 2008

Both the nose and the palate feel more structured, the firmness of the tannins tending to hold back the fruit at this stage. The potential is there with lots of black plum, blackcurrant and dark chocolate but at the moment they are overridden by the very firm tannins

Derek Smedley MW, April 2008

Dense colour, pronounced Cabernet Sauvignon nose, slightly smoky, even leathery fruit, density of fruit, elegance over power, but power is there. Drink 2013-22.4 stars.
