Wine tasting notes

Very concentrated, with notes of balsamic, red fruit and violet. Round, mature and silky tannins, add to a very balanced wine, with a long fresh finish.

Deepest cherry red. Still quite a bit of oak spice showing here but the varietal aromas are more intense. Lovely 'purple' aromas of black fruit and a light floral note, scented with something that is a cross between balsam/cedar and mint. Lovely freshness on the palate, the tannins already so supple. The oak shows but the fruit matches it. Juicy and moreish – you could drink this with or without food. Mouth-watering aftertaste, very well balanced. This may well have a longer life than I have suggested but the fruit is great to enjoy now - Julia Harding MW
