Single Bottle - Standard - 750mlStarting bid HK$440.00
Refined, aristocratic red offers tightly focused layers of currant, berry, herb and anise, which pick up a sweet-spice note on the long, firm-textured finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Best from 2005 through 2010. 240 cases imported.
A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Shiraz, the 1998 The Signature is more forward and exuberant than the 1996 The Reserve. While not as dense, tannic, or powerful as the latter wine, it is beautifully made, displaying a deep ruby/purple color in addition to a sweet perfume of smoky blackberry fruit and spice, soft tannin, and a long, heady finish. In spite of its sweetness, richness, and forwardness, it has considerable structure underlying all the fat. Anticipated maturity: now-2012
Ross White. Medium red-purple; a wonderfully fragrant bouquet of raspberry, cassis and quality oak is followed by a palate which is elegant, but with a rich core of ripe, not jammy, fruit; good management of extract throughout. One of the best in the Signature range to date.
