My 2/8, the group’s 2/8 A bit jammy on the nose with lots of sour cherry fruit and creamy oak but this also shows some complexity with notes of leather, milk chocolate, vanilla and juniper. Rather large scaled in the mouth, this is smooth, rich with soft tannins, and hints of woody spice herbs, and sweet vanilla all wrapping up a core of clack currant and black cherry fruit leading to a well balanced finish that shows a bit of elegance and freshness that sets this apart from many of the other wines tasted tonight. A bit modern and obvious but very well done. 90pts
