Tasting Notes

Swig Tasting Note: What a nose - red and black fruit compote with a hint of bay leaf. A bit of a baby Cote Rotie, but perhaps more playful. The palate is deliciously juicy, with crunchy red and black fruits - currants, raspberries, and brambles. That fruit is balanced by fresh herbs, black olives and a touch of black pepper. There's a lovely grip and dustiness to the tannins. Brilliant balance of rusticity and poise. Seriously good wine. 13% Drink now - 2022 Retasted, July 2017: a very accomplished wine. A deep and juicy glut of red and black fruit, hints of clove and orange peel along with black pepper and dried flowers. The palate is soft and generous with a fine line of zesty acidity, gentle, smoky oak spice and the faintest murmur of dusty tannin. Very generous, very juicy and open. Will develop well for a few years yet.

Press Note:

Josh Raynolds - "Bright purple. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-tinged black and blue fruits, candied violet and peppery spices backed by a smoky nuance. Silky and seamless in texture, offering gently sweet boysenberry and cherry cola flavors and a suggestion of candied licorice. In a lithe, elegant style, displaying very good finishing clarity, no excess fat, and just a hint of dusty tannins." - 91pts
