Decanter average score

Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 17 Sarah Jane Evans MW 18.5 Mike Ritchie MW 16
Intense, meaty, animal and wild. Dusky floral, smoky aromas. Silky, rounded mid-palate with abundant plums and cherries. Tangy acidity emphasises the grip of the tannin. Bold, full-flavoured, energetic expression of the variety.
