Layers of perfumed black currants, mushrooms, grilled venison. Intense saturating dark alluring fruit that finishes long and mostly crowds out the dry tannin

Quite light center , ruby going garnet , quite wide watery garnet rim . Lightly floral , undergrowth and red fruit aromas , showing development but within the expected for the vintage and age . Crunchy red berries. More violet red berry fruit on the palate. The body is quite light but the fruit is sweet and the acidity balanced but crisp , tannin is still noticeable and it’s probable that some improvement may still come from more time in the cellar. This is probably just entering into its window of drinkability however . Reasonably long length. Not a great vintage of the Ech but satisfying and true to the vintage, probably will improve with a bit more time .

My #5/6 and Will's #6. thin but cloudy. A hint of fizz and very fruity. Almost sweet but dry enough for Will
