Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 17 Sarah Jane Evans MW 18.5 Mike Ritchie MW 17
Vivid aromatics, alive with red stone fruits and vanilla. Dense, sumptuous palate led by crunchy red cherries and overlaid with velvety vanilla oak. Powerful but not without balance and charm, and with a long, satisfying finish.
