Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 17.5 Simon Field MW 17.5John Livingstone-Learmonth 17
Cerebral nose with floral and spicy notes to the black fruit, and a whiff of white pepper. Concentrated palate with a kernel of sweet fruit and lush, chewy tannins. Not fully integrated yet but has welcome swagger and persistence.
