(casks) the robe is dark, shiny. The bouquet is a big affair, and involves deeply set black fruits with oak and tar. It’s modern and streamlined in style. The palate reflects Syrah above all (tasted blind) with oak closely attached to the crisp but ripe black fruit. There is plenty of gusto in the wine, and a successful display of fruit and ripe tannin. 13°. 10,000 b. 80% Syr, 20% Gren. From mid-2017. 2022-23  June 2016
