dark colour. Clean oak air with a sweet underlay of tar and leather – this is a wide shouldered bouquet that is aromatic, shows good restraint. Stylish fruit comes forward on the attack; it flows well, is tasty and round on the finish. Has style and a northern climes finesse. The flavour is wholesome, reflects prune and freshness, with blackberry jam and black olive tapenade on the aftertaste. 14°. 2022-23  Oct 2012
