93 Points, Decanter
Smoky and brooding on the nose, with a deep undercurrent of red currants, red cherries, bramble and dark berries. It's both savoury and full of sweet fruit and toasted almonds, providing instant gratification. Open and inviting, and does feel a little warm on the finish. This will develop very nicely. It saw a three day pre-fermentation cold soak, gentle pressing, and maturation in French oak, of which 30% was new.
