"It is bright mid cherry red in colour and immediately fragrant, pretty, fine and detailed with raspberry and spice underpinned by almost rustic and understated mushroom consume and earthy aromas. It is then dry, mid-weight and acid driven, with delicious dark and red fruits slowly emerging and that spice coming back for an encore."

"...30% new French puncheons and barriques, aged 1 year. There's a bit more shape to the tannins, still plush and soft with requisite cherries and spice, hint of forest floor/humus. Again a delicacy to this and very drinkable."
