From relative obscurity some years back, to one of the more keenly anticipated releases, at least with TWF subscribers. Fair to say, they know their Claret from their Beaujolais. Blackcurrant, plum, menthol, perfume and lift, perhaps some stewed fruit, spicy biscuity oak. Medium bodied, deep plummy fruit, tobacco, plump tannin, juicy acidity, and fine pencil tannin and earthy flavours on the finish, perhaps some raspberry. Texture and drinkability is a highlight here.
