Gorgeous medium garnet red. Blueberries, crushed olives and earth are forefront on the nose with a very subtle oak cigar box complexity. The mouthfeel is soft, with a pencil lead angularity, reminiscent of classic claret styling. Flavors of cherry, earth, blue fruits are framed by a tension of natural acidity. A nice weight to the mouth.
James Suckling 92 - Redcurrants with iron and hints of rust on the palate. It’s medium-to full-bodied with chewy yet round tannins and a savory finish. 69% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 11% syrah. Drink or hold.
