June 23, 2013 - For the money a steal! Lovely lovely lovely, I'm going to try to get more. Tesco getting rid of the rest of their stocks. I think made in a new world fruit forward style, but with a lot of tannins, and off the go HUUGE and green bitter tannins, but with good soft dark red and blue fruits and some blackcurrant on the palate. Big, fruity, a little too much tannin (think it's more skins than wood), but pretty decent!
Softens with time, and an hour in the tannins are still big but more manageable (And I don't like huge young tannins). I think this will age, even though it's not really an ageing style, as it has enough acidity (guess pH3.6-7) to hold for a bit and let it integrate more and get some secondaries. .
