No surprise that this, from one of the wine world’s top names, is a plush and silky number. The nose is bright and lifted, with crisp cranberry and raspberry fruit and a dash of sweet spice and liquorice. It fills out on the palate, yet retains its freshness with brisk red berries. 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
