An ethereal and evocative claret, neither tub thumping nor light weight. Precision and purity on the nose showing delicate, currant skin, ripe cedar notes and a hint of the lush red fruits with attractive undergrowth scents and a touch of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good depth of fruit, blackberry laced with cedar and graphite. Ripe plum, redcurrant and cassis with just a wee note of herb and aromatic wood. High class and will drink well throughout the 2020s.
