The Wine Gang, 90 points

Smoky and mineral, this overflows with tobacco and spice, but it has lovely cool black fruit too. On the palate it is precise and very refined, a cigar boxy, cedary spice is there but such lovely sweetness at its core.

Medium to full-bodied, dense, corpulent black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of liquorice, roasted herbs, cedar, spice box and toasty oak…very satisfying on a hedonistic level.

Bold but fragrant young wine, with bags of dusty dark blackcurrant, blackberry and loganberry fruit given interest by perfumed/spicy vanilla notes, a light toasty edge and a sappy, happy finish. Richly flavoured, but retains some freshness.
