Big jammy fruit on the nose is full of blackberry and mulberry with a bit of orange peel and a touch of complexity. This is smooth and rich in the mouth. Quite a powerful wine with very ripe tannins and an impressive dry extract that lends this a deep old vine feel, with an almost chocolate earth edge to the fruit. The finish is dry, dark and a bit angry, leaving one with an impression that this is not fruit-driven, yet it remains intense and fresh. I would love to see what happens to this in the cellar. 90pts

10,000 bottles produced Chalky on the nose with an herbal extract note with leathery and slight campfire like accents. A little compact but with excellent depth and a lovely roundness that doesn't obscure the detail here. There's fine acidity and plenty of ripe tannins supporting the slightly medicinal core of wild blackberry and slightly grapy fruit. The finish is short and tight at this point, but this gains fine length with rich fruit and a fine spiced edge all leading up to a finely fruited finale. Excellent for the vintage. 90pts
