steady red robe; cassis, soaked black cherries air in a strongly fruited bouquet, comes with a wee note of peppermint, is polished. The palate bears sleek blackcurrant fruit, some mulberry lifting it; it works mostly on the attack and front end for now. A modern, upfront wine. Tar, some nuttiness on the finish, which needs to be tidied up. From spring 2015. 15°. Bottled May 2013. 2018-19  Oct 2013
