    August 20, 2022 - An initial burst of sour cherries is followed by prunes and chocolate underpinned with gentle ruffled tannins. It broadens out nicely on the palate and altogether rather delicious. 89 pts

    February 10, 2022 - Sweet ripe cherry and cranberry fruit set in a velvet texture with pleasing soft tannins. Spicy and warming, the fruit, tannins and acidity were all in perfect harmony and the result was delicious with the bonus of a decent length of finish. From a great vintage and a cracking buy from Waitrose at a tenner a bottle on promotion. 89 points
