A tight little nose with gamy rose hips, rose petals, and faint red curranty fruit. This is round and immediately red fruited on entry with red cherry and raspberry fruit that shows a soft sweetness and fine strawberry seed spice. Tannins are well managed, present but unobtrusive with juicy acidity and a nice watermelon undertone to the fruitiness. Really fine wild cherry fruit on the moderately long finish that shows a fine medicinal edge. Fruity yet classic style with super ripe tannins. 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

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

A bit heavy, dark and spicy with some candied herbal tones, a bit raw, cherry in alcohol, very bright, a bit splintery in the mouth. Nice fresh feel but flavors are a bit dull, soft tannins are well managed, lacks some vibrancy and detail, nice low-key finish, nice length but simple.

AWE blind tasting - barrels, way too much barrels, smoky oak and extracted fruit, has a nice vegetal character hiding behind though, big fruit, really nice vegetal herbal flavors but the texture is a bit goopy, , really extracted black cherry fruit on the back end, I can see this being very popular 86-87
