Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge's scores: Steven Brook 17.5 Ronan Sayburn MS 16.5 Steven Spurrier 17.5
Lush but lifted blackberry nose, with a hint of menthol, Cabernet black fruits and earth. Medium-bodied, silky, fine acidity, an elegant rather than massive style, with a clean, almost tangy finish.
