Gorgeous nose, layers of black fruit, potpourri, chaparral, lavender, asian spices, sweet herbs, tobacco, wet slate, coffee. Highly aromatic, glycerin richness, concentration yet remarkably nimble on the palate. The sweet oak tannin could use some resolve, and the ABV pokes out on the finish. Very curious where this is heading, also where it’s been. Excited for harvest!

Insanely dark ruby red. Slightly savory attack with notes of black fruits, layered and rounded with light perfume and baking spices. Heavy tannins (8.5/10) and full bodied. Darker than the Cariad, with dark cocoa, blackberries and a slight stoniness. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2042.

Outstanding. Maybe I should have waited a few years to drink this as it will only get better. But it was just one of those things

Dark red fruit, lavender, mocha, red currants. Easygoing wine by Colgin standards but typical of the 2012 vintage.
