Definitely an above average wine. Solid, deep, dark fruit flavours are displayed with a generous amount of oak. The mouth feel is very full and smooth and the finish is quite long.

Very good ripeness Achieved in this wine showing lots of pure, dark plum and fruitcake along with green herbs and a lashing of overt oak. Chalky tannins, youthful astringency, and Rather lean and angular - more so than expected. Would-have loved to see less oak. Wait until 2018, May very well Improve
