Bright and bursting full of cherry sauce, red fruits, potpourri, liquorice and earth. It’s ruggedly, but handsomely tannic, with a little black tea bitterness but has genuine quality and drinkability stamped all over it. Length is excellent, as is the satisfaction. Lovely wine. Tasted it first and ended up smashing though it later - a good sign. Drink : 2010 - 2017 93 points.
