Eye-opening from the first sniff that reveals barbecue spices and cracked black peppercorn, these aromas are compelling. The youthful palate pops with perfectly ripe and nicely pure fruits, including black currant, sloe and elderberry. The juicy, medium-plus bodied core is suavely surrounded by lightly leathery tannins and is nicely propped up by crisp acidity. Vigorously savory on the palate, this is a perfect companion for a hearty winter meal or simply cuddling up by the fireplace. Drink now–2025.
