88 Points 4 Stars - Sam Kim Wine orbit
"Beautifully maturing, the bouquet shows dried cherry, smoked game, almond and thyme characters, leading to a nicely rounded palate that's savoury and lingering. It's complex and engaging with appealing spicy flavours, finishing long and pleasingly dry. At its best: now to 2021."

Both Juicy and savoury this is mouthfilling and ridiculously smooth. Aromas of black forest fruits, forest floor and a waft of balsamic. Depth of flavour and beautiful light spiciness, flavours of cherry compote and more forest floor notes. Soft and long stretchy tannin structure. What an awesome little PN!
