Boschendal Lanoy 1996

Excellent concentration of colour and good depth of fruit flavours - multi layered peppery spice dominating the bramble berry fruit. Good entrance, well balanced - good medium ripe tannin grip with generous body and structure. A well integrated medium-bodied red which will improve with time.
