Tannins have rounded out nicely and it’s got some pretty intense fruit forward characteristics. Black cherries, raspberries and a bit of spice on the back end.

Fab light PN @ £43 that given 3-5 yrs will be lovely but a touch too green stalky now - the 2013 was much better 👍

🍷 Transparent pink hue cherry

👃 Cherry cola, light oak, loamy earth, smoke, raspberry jam & herbs

👄 Med body of creamy smooth but not jammy earthy spiced cola cherry w/ a hint of blackberry & green stalk in med acidity

🎯 Med+ cherry & blackberry green touch dry linger

Gordons Čhanin tasting 6/13/17. $45. #9. softer and silky textures compared with the others. More of the fruit forward style that's immediately drinkable. But also minty notes and some weight and be interesting to see how it ages.
