Slight bn edge. Toast & spice, savoury, nutty oak, black berry. Berry/cherry spice, nutty & dusty oak, slight hollow, drying tannins. Food : works very well, fills out the palate, moreish.

Starting to show a little age and gain an extra dimension beyond just fruit but still not exactly wrinkled that seems a little fruitier and younger with the food.

Deep plum. Leather, honey, cedar/tobacco aromas. Full, dense, rather edgy acid/tannin balance. Food: no joy ? too leathery.

Rich ripe and round with lovely sweet leather and savoury notes on the palate. Ripe fruit driven tannins on the mid palate that are sweet and textured. A great balance of flavours with the flank dish. The sweet textured wine becomes quite silky.

Deep red. Creamy oak, concentrated dark fruit, spicy black pepper on the nose. Full bodied, dry, tannic, rich plush concentration of red berries, black plum, black pepper. Dry creamy, long ripe blackberries and pepper on the finish. Powerful wine for aging. Pairing lengthened the slightly more savoury side of the wine, whilst pointing up the grassy, sweet flavour of the beef.

Very deep brick red colour. Generous dark plum and jammy aromas on the nose with some nice complexing vanilla and coconut oak influences. The palate is rich and spicy without being overpowering. Lovely fruit weight and length.
