92 Falstaff: “On the nose, intense aromas of young cherry, currant, tomato leaf, plum, clove and vanilla. On the palate, wild berries and herbal savouriness, lively acidity, fine tannins, good overall balance and a nice, long finish.”

92 James Suckling: “This doesn’t taste a bit like it comes from a difficult vintage. Deep nose of wet earth, red beets, forest berries and spice. Excellent tannin structure and some real concentration to balance it on the medium-bodied palate, the acidity already beautifully integrated. All the elements interlock very neatly at the long moderately dry finish. Good aging potential.
