(2021) A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc aged in barrel for a year, this has a lovely nose: very appealing and alluring with cedar and tobacco, and quite a ripe, creamy black and blue fruit character. In the mouth there is lovely fruit here, this 2015 just softening slightly though tannins still firm and black cherry acid still keen, but the flesh of the fruit and the lightly charry and creamy barrel component adds layered complexity. Drinking well with some cellaring potential - 8 to 10 years.
