dark, vibrant robe. Juicy blackberry aroma, full of generosity and fleshy appeal, agreeably meaty, also has some coffee snap. The palate has gras and immediate depth, good coating and richness. It could be more nuanced, but will vary with age – is well textured. From late 2013. 13.5°. 2022-24 April 2011
