(2010 Vintage) Ripe, with dark blackberry and linzer torte fruit laced nicely with the racy, mouthwatering acidity and strong graphite spine of the vintage. Long, driven and very solid, with serious, charcoal-tinged grip.
Decanter(2007 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Big, liquoricey nose with nice, chewy new oak on palate and good length.
Decanter(1996 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Lovely nose - plums, with distinctive aromas of new mown hay. Immediately appealing palate, with velvety plum and blackberry flavours, and hints of spice and savouriness.
