95 POINTS: "Outstanding"; Cameron Douglas MS
A deep, crimson red colour with dark red berry fruit, red liquorice florals and pepper on the nose. Complexity from the small new oak component sits perfectly in the background on the palate. Savoury, long and finely tuned without being heavy, dense or dry.
"Intensely varietal and fruity with a core of ripe raspberry and red currant fruit then white peppercorn scents, no mistaking the layer of fresh toasty new oak with baking spices, bacon and toasty barrel aromas. Complex with a stony mineral layer and inviting bouquet. On the palate - firm, tense, youthful with a core of fruit and oak tension, flavours of dark berries, raspberry and plum, there’s a spicy toasty, an aged meat layer and salty peppercorn"
