Last bottle and haven’t had in over a year. Love this bottling. Gorgeous wet earth, tobacco, bright cherries, tar, leather. Terrific. Juicy, spicey, rich yet energetic. Red cherry fruit glides along the palate backed up by nice mineral and earthy sweetness and huge minerals. Delicious. Really pays to age some wines 2-3 years.

Such a good Barbers. Gorgeous berry and cherry fruit. So pure. Floral and a bit grapey. Hint of rubber. Leather. Love it. So classic. Palate is ripe and juicy with lovely zippy freshness. Wonderful mouthfeel and just a wonderful gulpful of fruit. So lively and energetic.

Mad love for this. Cherry. Cherry licorice. Licorice finish. But perfect balance. One of the most delicious wines of the year. Brighter than most superiores. I could drink a case of this... In a night. Had it with chicken with juniper berry sauce. Amazing. In a rational world anyone with space would buy 5 cases a year. Bought from fass selections.
