Tasting notes


Frank, open, fresh claret. Not big but balanced and not modern but invigorating. It has lots of oak but it's well integrated and is a positive addition. A wine with character - fleshy and generous with a soft, jammy mid-palate. Nice balance and length. Drink: 2015. Alc: 13%. (16.5 points)
