“A very spicy and fresh array of blueberries, ripe darker cherries and plums. Cassis aromas too, as well as more savoury notes of graphite and fragrant wood. The palate has very striking depth and presence with expansive, fleshy tannins carrying intense fruit flavours, in the darker spectrum of cherries and berries, Cocoa powder to close.” (2/2020) James Suckling 94 Points
