dark red colour. An air of sweet, slightly green oak is the main context on the nose, with a little stewed red berry fruit behind. The palate also shows oak immediately, serves dark and tarry content with a definite cellar over vineyard feel. The oak sits on the outside on the aftertaste. A muddled wine. 14°. 35,000 b. 63% Gren, 37% Syr. €10.40. To 2019  June 2016

sturdy dark red. Smoky-oak, rather abrupt imposition on the nose – it spreads fair fruit across it – its raising is the problem, and it’s the same on the palate, where it is overdone. The oak lacks finesse and makes the wine jagged and stretched. Not fun. 13.5°. June 2013
