"Ripe raspberry and salvia-leaf nose. This reminds me, in a wild, island, windswept way, of Pinot Noir. Silk-slip tannin elegance. A little wildness, a touch of kalamata olive, a little sweetness that is almost grapey, cola, in character. And there is freshly grated nutmeg. And crushed bay leaf. Complex and compelling. Little stories folded into each mouthful, is what I sense. (TC)" 16.5 pts, Jancis Robinson

Cloves and all spice, tight red cherries, dried cranberries, fresh and juicy with a spicy herbal lift.
Ripe, juicy, ethereal, almost Burgundian in the sweet red berry fruit and note of anise, toothsome but not aggressive, delicious Tom Harrow
