Tasted at Handford's 21st Anniversary tasting in Holland Park. It is quite a while since I tasted this...but what a fantastic wine. The nose is still tightly knit, attesting an Unico that will require 20-30 years in bottle to reach its plateau. Touches of star anis, peppermint, boysenberry and blackberry vie for attention and soar from the glass. The palate is very youthful and supple, incredible power but married to great finesse and poise with a floral, harmonious finish that caresses like a wanton woman (or man depending on your persuasion.) Superb. (NM)   (9/2011) -- Rated 96 by 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
