Alistair Cooper MW

A brooding deep nose, also showing the classic leafy red herbal notes. There’s a hint of black olive on the palate, along with chalky fine tannins. Elegant, clean and with a very long finish. Deliciously well made, it carries the 14% alcohol effortlessly - supremely balanced wine.

Dense, savoury, deep and firm with smooth tightly knit tannin, glassy acidity and a long finish. Flavours are of black cherry, aniseed, dried herb and almond paste. It has a very ‘mineral’ feel to it, in such a way that it has something of a Teroldego character about it. Beautifully turned out. Adult. Sophisticated style. Touch and go for 95 points really.
