dark, shiny red robe. There is a mix of toffee and coulis of blackberry in a nose of sustained depth; it’s clear, the fruit goes “ping”, and it’s lightly floral, too. The palate gives live berry fruit with good drive, plenty of fresh tannins. There is real movement here, is a dentelle, toothsome wine that is cellar-led for now.

(casks) dark colour, black tints, purple top, legs, a promising robe. Compact, pretty deep nose offering oak and black cherry, a note of varnish. The palate bears fluid black fruit, cassis and again oak in the picture, just some drifts of acetate. Pretty good, needs another 15 months for the oak. Table wine. €15.75. 2021-22  Jan 2015  Previously Nov 2014 *** red robe; the nose is subdued, has an aroma of berried fruit, fair depth to it. The palate holds easy to drink black berry and black stone fruit. A quiet wrap of tannin at the end works well. There is a good link between nose and palate here. There is a touch of tannin on the close, and it lasts OK. Solid quality. OK to drink now. 13°. £130 12b i/b H2Vin www.H2Vin.co.uk orders@H2Vin.co.uk To 2019 Nov 2014

dark robe; there is a fine scenting in a coulis, black jam setting – the nose is round, will be shapely. Attractive fruit starts the palate, is open, with a gradual pick up of mild tannin, dusty notes. Has the structure to go to a second stage successfully. Blueberry and raspberry compose the finale. From mid-late 2014. 2019-20  Nov 2013
