- The Wine
A soft cherry nose with a hint of sweetness, some chocolate notes. Soft and juicy on the palate, very fruity with more cherries. Nice soft tannins with good length.
Ben says of the 2010 (April 2017): A lovely ruby colour with a soft rim leads to a cherry nose with quite a lot of chocolate coming through. The acidity still gives plenty of freshness and the dark chocolate now covers the cherries in the mouth giving a lovely chocolate start and a burst of cherry following. The tannins have sufficient grip and the finish is quite long and delicious.
This is a wine to drink now and to keep for five or six more years.
Ben says of the 2015 (December 2018): The notes for the 2010 apply pretty well to the 2015 but, understandably, there is far more freshness. A delightful wine.
