Original Wooden Case ; Single Bottle - Double Magnum - 3 LitersStarting bid HK$18,500.00
Deep garnet colored, the 2006 The Laird offers a multi-faceted nose of ripe black berries, blueberry preserves and kirsch aromas with an underlying perfume of baking spices, lavender, cinnamon stick and cloves plus some savory / earthy nuances, including bacon, black tea, tobacco and forest floor. The palate is full bodied and densely packed with fruit, savory and earth flavors while supported by a firm level of very fine-grained tannins and refreshing acidity. It finishes very long and while already incredibly complex, promises a lot more to come. Consider drinking it 2014 to 2026+.
A wine that manages to embellish the extremely ripe Barossa character with some freshness, further enhanced by old vine vinosity and some spicy garrigue notes of rosemary and thyme. Long, but for its fans rather than those who want to sit and enjoy an entire bottle. Drink now and over a decade.
