Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Deep ruby colour. Ripe cherry, toasted spices, baked vanilla and fresh blackcurrant on the nose. The palate is slick and polished, black fruit intertwining with fresher red cherry. The tannins are ripe but chewy, offering ample structure. There is some cedar and tobacco on the finish, adding savoury complexity. 91-94 Farr Vintners, London.

This is very full and layered with lots of blackcurrant and walnut and hints of spice. It’s full-bodied and chewy, yet the tannins are polished and energetic. 94-95 James Suckling. Powerful, a little austere with tight black fruits that will benefit from adding flesh over ageing, as the tannins are a little angular right now. The freshly crushed mint leaf finish is beautiful, and this is is rippled with powerful nuanced fruit, tobacco and earthy flavours, followed by waves of violet flowers. 94 Janes Anson, Decanter.

The medium-bodied palate delivers fantastic tension and impressively ripe, fine-grained tannins to support the crunchy, energetic black fruit flavours, finishing with a lively herbal lift. 92-94 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate.
