Can’t put this one down.... beautiful nose of dried rose pedal, dusty rainer cherry, coco bean. Earthy. Juicy blackcherry fruit bounds on the palate accented by espresso and cedar box. Cranberry too. Outstanding length with soft, persistent tannins. Great now, only better with cellar age.

Mörk frukt och relativt mycket stall och läder. Medium kropp med lite surt och beskt avslut

Dark, almost black and opaque. The French oak is noticeable but in check by lovely ripe fruit. Palate is not terribly long, but that’s ok here. Lovely now with long drinking window ahead. Heavy sediment even at this early age. Very good value.

Relativt hög syra lite fat och körsbär. Saknar lite botten. Blev bättre med bolognese som också hade hög syra. En flaska kvar

Love this; savoury, balanced, complex; tobacco, almonds, cherries, leather...plenty of acidity for grip and food friendliness and tannin for backbone.
