Pale ruby; tar & roses, riveting; lacy, refreshing acidity, softly-softly fruit, fresh feel & balanced; extended finish.

Dark; classy, fulsome, fresh black currants, direct; clean, refreshing palate, tannins remain but wrapped in ripe, dark fruits. Forthright, sturdy & vigourous finish. Should drink well for close to a decade.

Initial brettiness; very impressive next day, this was a lovely to drink. Fulsome, real depth; clearly has loads of time in hand.

Rich colour; easygoing. weak nose, lurking underneath a stalkiness providing some character; friendly, rounded, weak against roast lamb but alone shows more backbone. Initially innocuous but developed with time. Decent enough. Hard to gauge if any improvement possible. Safest to drink soon. On revisiting a couple of hours later, this showed much better & had sufficient stuffing for medium term drinking.

Continues to progress at a snails pace. The weight & presence to accompany roast leg of lamb, lovely texture. Can be enjoyed now but potential room to improve.
