Press

  • 93/100 - Bright medium ruby. Black fruit and licorice aromas are lifted by sexy oak spices and pungent minerality. Suave and fine-grained, conveying terrific mineral lift and a light touch to its red and black fruit and violet flavors. This sharply delineated wine expands dramatically on the slightly inky finish, which features serious savory tannins and an element of graphite minerality. This is my favorite of the Terroir Series bottlings today in terms of style and definition and should get even better as the vines gain in age.

  • (2015 vintage) Crazy aromas of ink and dark berries. Flowers, too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins with blackberry and graphite character. Linear and racy. Beautiful finish. Tight and reserved. Needs two or three more years to show it all. 97/100.

  • Team leader Tom Forrest was happy to articulate the many reasons for this wine’s Gold medal listing, saying: ‘There are high notes of cinnamon spice and vanilla; then raspberry and cranberry with a smoky char. The palate is plump, with soft creamy vanilla and ripe blackberry and dark cherry, while the finish is marked with a dash of dark pepper.’ While nearly all the judges noted the continued fashion for the weighty receptacle in this category, Tanguy Martin of New Street Warehouse was pleased to find ‘real elegance’ coming out of ‘such a heavy bottle’, a point on which team leader Martin Lam agreed. Commending the ‘ripe, spicy fruit and juicy balanced tannins’, he added: ‘For a big wine this certainly has a good, attractive character.’
