A bit of development on the nose, quite sweet and fruity but not jammy.Delicious, slightly oaky, sweet ripe fruit, silky with a dry finish.
Baked blackcurrants on the nose.Sweet but tannic attack, a little treacly, maybe dried fruit in the finish, rather short.
A bouquet of some red fruit with the expected black fruits, a bit of oak and a touch of meatiness.Very sweet attack, quite jammy a little tannin but soft and manageable, peppery finish, this wine is ready now.
Quite fragrant, blackcurrant with a bit of oak.Fruity, marked tannins tasting tough, lots of promise, not yet ready, try again in 4 - 5 years.
Oaky at first then the nose develops fruity and meaty notes.Very sweet with gentle tannins, drinking quite well now but could improve over the next 5 years.
Nicely perfumed, meaty with some fruit.Sweet, fruity and spicy, concentrated and balanced, still quite tannic, just about drinkable now but will be so much better in 5 years.
Youthful with fresh ripe fruit.Oaky, still very fruity and tannic, complex and concentrated, needs keeping 5 - 10 years.
Delicate nose, mature but still fruity.Gorgeous mouth, sweet attack, still fruity and good for the next 5 years.
A very different nose, earthy, treacly, complex.Raisins in the mouth, spicy, tannic, somehow past its best, dries out in the mid palate and then disappears very quickly.
