A powerful mix of cherry, licorice and tar aromas and flavors are backed by well-proportioned tannins in this red, which displays plenty of sweet fruit as it glides to the wild herb - and tar-filled finish. Best from 2019 through 2033. -BS

Aromas of ripe fruit, dried meat and hints of mushroom follow through to a full body. Fresh and firm with hints of licorice and raspberry. Tannic now. A tight and multidimensional wine that will improve with bottle age. Better in 2017.

Mid ruby. Developed nose and gentle but without an enormous amount of force and density. Very dry, tart finish. Light damson flavours.
