Pleasant if not too restrained – primary fruit (cherry, plum) struggling to make an impact on the nose or palate.
Further savoury characteristics on the palate, toasted oak and fine tannins, medium acidity and a medium- finish. High alcohol but once again wasn’t evident in the body. Was expecting more for the price, just scrapes a 90, based on my love of this label.
Not sure that there is much to be gained from by leaving the rest in the cellar but I might wait another year.
