Tasting Notes

Good, mid-deep colour, still nearly opaque; lovely open floral fruit with a touch of esteva (gum cistus), classic; sweet, minty ripeness with a touch of dark chocolate at the core, already quite suave with a peppery finish, not especially big or structured but lovely to drink now and over the next ten years.

Score: 4 Stars

Fine, open, classic floral aromas with a touch of rock rose. Sweet, minty, ripe palate – suave with a touch of dark chocolate at the core. Not especially big but supple and approachable.

Score: 17/20

A plush and expressive nose and palate of fleshy sweet  plum shows eucalpyt, spicy gingerbread, chocolate violet creams and liquorice.  Good vigour yet poised.  Very good.

Deep purple core with wide, fading rim. Ripe plum dominates the nose with hints of prune and mint. Second wave of aromas brings chocolate, vanilla and some sweet oak. Full and soft in the mouth yet still bright acidity. Compact and intense with fruit flavours bursting to show themselves. Great structure and balance. Firm tannins and long, persistent finish. Loads of potential to develop.

Score: Gold Medal

Intense, opaque with blue/black edge. Unbelievable concentration on the nose. Absolutely plum packed with dark cherries and chocolate and vanilla. Velvet across the palate kept keen with lively tannins. Big, massive structure with great backbone. All leads to massive time to develop all it has to offer.

Score: Silver Medal
