Decanter average score: 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: RJ 16 PM 18.5 AR 18
Closed nose, yet to reveal underlying spice, liqourice, cassis and mint. Elegant, deep, intense, meaty palate with lively acidity and fine, succulent, fresh tannins. Plenty of finesse and power with an intense finish. Still in its infancy.
