red robe; reductive, foxy nose, Brett, wildness. No way José on the palate, gamey and dry. This has been K.O’d. Dec 2019


dark red robe. Has a smoky, near graphite, low-key  cooked plum fruit air with a note of rose hip. The palate gives a small ball of dark berry fruit along with trim tannins. This hasn’t been overworked at all, has a natural style, and ends with an increase in tannin. Very correct. 13°. To 2018  Dec 2015

red with some depth; the nose is reticent, but well set red fruit lies within, accompanied by a bosky air also. The palate red fruits are generally supple and easy-going – it's drink now wine without great depth; it runs along with some late tannins, is a zinc drink. Nice and genuine, traditional wine. OK with food, too. 13°. 2010-11 Dec 2008
