dark, shiny red robe. The nose is broad and rather beefy, its black berry fruit lying low, but the couch is firm for the future. There is a touch of licorice in with its blackberry. The palate starts on tight-knit content, with black fruit density at its centre. The length is good, holding up well to the finish. This is authentic, with a little fresh spark in it. The texture is rather thick, intense. Plum-raspberry fruit features near the finish, and it ends with good drive. Decant this. 13.5°. 41,368 b. 55% Syr, 40% Gren, 5% Cins. From spring 2017. 2021-22 Nov 2016
