Had some prior vintages, I’m not a big fan. Aromas of spicy berry fruit and earthy oak scents. On the palate light cherry flavors, big acidity with tight harsh tannins. Medium finish ending with an oaky herbaceous character, lacks balance. Pass on this one. Tasting Sample.

Light body. Earthy nose. Light cherry taste. Medium low acid. Smooth finish.

Drank on 21/11/2019 at Majestic Poole’s Winter Showcase.
Pale, orangey red in colour. Berries on the nose. Dry and youthful on the mouth.
