Tasting Notes and Scores
-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7
An excellent effort from Belgrave, the saturated dark ruby-colored, medium-bodied 2000 offers a sweet aromatic and flavor profile of plums, black currants, cherries, licorice, and dried Provencal herbs. The wine is deep, elegant, and medium-bodied, with solid tannin in the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2014.
Ripe and decadent, with lots of berry fruit on the nose. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a lovely, subtle spicy and berry aftertaste. Well-crafted. Best after 2005. James Suckling
