Notes of menthol and a touch of eucalyptus adds a fresh counter point to the dark, brooding fruit, typical of this vintage. Warm oak notes add gravitas and a luxurious attraction to the nose. It leads to a palate that teems with rich fruit and notes of cherry tobacco, with a further herbal edge and grippy lead pencil on the finish.

A fragrant unspooling of red berries, just plucked off a wintery branch, cool and incandescent. The aromas deepen to the darker tones of cassis, brambleberries and black cherries. The vivid fruit is overlaid with a hint of balsam, sketched in with woody spice, fresh cinnamon, touches of vanilla smoke and classic cigar box.
Rich, plummy and luscious dark cherry is evident to start; balanced by notes of pipe tobacco, fresh, tilled earth, and an elegant, herbaceous tone, including buchu and bay leaf. The palate follows, full of rounded, rich, fruit flavours and cherry, dense tannins, with a chalky and dry end.
Deep crimson rim with a dark plum core. Beguiling aromatics of dark flora, sweet forest-floor and cherry tobacco, then garrigue-spiced black fruit and the richness of ripe raspberry. Silky damson fruit is generous and full on the palate, with a bright core of black cherry and juicy plum.
Lots of deep red and black berry fruit, with vibrant spice notes and floral perfume from dollops of Cinsault and Grenache. The Cabernet Sauvignon adds some graphite and notes of fresh tilled earth. The palate is filled with cool fruit, lifted with spice and fleshed out with juicy, bold yet crunchy freshness.
Rich fruited, with lovely intensity. Notes of graphite over nice dark, brooding fruit. Attractive oak aromas, cedar, spice, as well as ripe plum/dark fruit and an attractive warmth to the nose. Wonderfully youthful, energetic, with a lingering graphite/ lead pencil finish.
