A stunning wine. Really beautiful. Dark and intense. Drinks incredibly well now and has been for a while. I’ve had this a few times and consistently excellent. A beauty.

This is young but wonderfully seductive. Dense and lush with deep red fruit and some spice. On the palate, wood still present but the fruit is deep and sexy and succulent. In years ahead this’ll be amazing but it has huge promise.

This is lush and exotic. An expansive nose with black cherry, mocha, dark currant. Dense on the palate with lovely fruit but tightly coiled. Quite thick at the end. With time this should be spectacular.

Still quite young, but drinking as it should, really balanced for the vintage, quite a few producers overdid it with the ripeness/oak levels, this is not one of them, it will be great to see it in another 10 years.
