Uses declassified Broken Press grapes. Screw cap. Medium-high intensity aromas of freshly cracked black peppercorn, purple flower, dark berry, dark fruit and blackberry notes. The palate is full-bodied with sour cherry, blackberry, pepper, dark fruit and subtle oak flavours with some meatiness underneath. Tannins are medium+ firm, integrating well but still a touch tight. Acids are refreshing, while the finish length is very good and shows some earthiness. Tasted June/2017.
