"Ruggedly beautiful. This is brilliant with bold fruit but it's muscular with tannin too; it's like a bodybuilder in sheer lycra. Smooth cassis, silken milk chocolate, a smattering of bay leaves and violets. It has good concentration but it's not a big wine; it doesn't need to be. What it does have is form, presence and persistence."

"A very attractively pure expression of redcurrant, red plum and cherry with light cedary notes. The palate has smoothly delivered oak influence that adds creamy in-fill to the elegant, mid-weight red-fruit flavors. So balanced. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
