Tasting Note:

Contrary to conventional wisdom, the team here decided not to do soft extractions. They wanted to build a backbone so elected to go deep with their macerations. Again, very dark and sultry. There's plenty of silky black fruit and kirsch – quite black forest gateaux, lush and detailed initially, then dominated by imposing tannins, which are quite velure in texture, but maybe too much at the moment. It'll be fascinating to see how this knits together as it feels like one of the outliers of the vintage. Made from a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot.
