Wispy fruit. Leaf and mushroom smells after an hour or so open. Some cedar and mustard seed to the taste, which was strong and assertive. Spicy finish. A light-bodied, autumnal wine that demanded food and paired well with a leek and porcini risotto.
Quite mature looking with brown edges. Volatile nose with burnt flavors and varnish. On the palate it's very good and rounded with light red fruit and a soft mature tannins. After 3-4 hours it seemed to fall apart a bit on the nose and I don't know how this will develop.
Pale garnet core, medium pale garnet rim. Nose is mellow and quite mature, lightly smoky and gamey, soil, underlying red cherry fruit. On the palate this is medium bodied, quite light and airy but not lacking depth, showing red cherry, some plum, liquorice and soil, lovely fresh acidity, traces of tannin on the sneakily persistent savoury, gamey finish. Excellent, drinking well, but still with scope for improvement.
