steady red robe. Has an ink, squid style, pulp aroma, black cherry at its heart: it holds OK. The palate delivers a cherry stone flavour, licorice, blackberry mixed in. The tannins have a chalky, pingy quality, are very breezy. It’s coherent between nose and palate, is tucked in for now, can emerge from around spring 2020 onwards. 13°. 1,000 b. €16.50. 2028-30 Dec 2018

dark robe. Has a tight, soft air, an aroma of blackberry, wee depth from prune, also licorice. The palate is compact, comes with a light run of black fruit. This is easy to drink, with late freshness, a light grain tannin. Bottled Sept 2015. €15. 2018-19 Dec 2015
