Details

"Red and black fruit, cocoa, aniseed and violet. Medium bodied, fine grained tannin, lovely flow and flavour, and while perhaps not the most concentrated of wines, it does feel effortless and has a long clean finish, closing with cool acidity and a slide of gravelly tannin. Very good now, though perhaps a little better with a couple of years under its belt." 92 Points!

"55/30/9/6% blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. 12 months in French oak, 30% new. It's a mid-weight wine at most but it wants for nothing. It mostly tastes of redcurrant and plum though there are darker, more blackcurrant-like flavours here too, boosted by gravel and dark chocolate. Toasty oak chips in with an opinion too. Is arguably best served by a patient approach." 93 Points
