Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 17.5 Simon Field MW 16.5 John Livingstone-Learmonth 17.5
Attractive, spicy nose of cassis, loganberry, violets, blueberries and laurel. Has a sealed, baked layer of black fruit, plus a roasted, meaty aspect. Not much flesh or weight but has charm and authenticity, and the balance is impeccable; it should age well.
