(large barrel) full, quite bright red robe. The nose lines up a clear a strike of dark fruit, has a prune, ripe damson plum duo of aromas. The palate gives easy textured content, fluid gras at its centre. It continues well, correctly building towards a more complete finish than in mid-palate. Good potential here: it’s a pretty big wine, but the parts fit well. I like the length, fullness, and surge of salty freshness as it ends. Has character, potential complexity. 15°. 65% Gren, 15% Mourv, 15% Syr, 5% Cins. 15°. From 2020. 2033-36  Sept 2016
