Plum skin, briar and blackberry notes flesh out nicely in this version, while the finish shows more currant and licorice notes. Turns polished, thanks to well-embedded acidity. Fresh and engaging now but just a bit high-toned at the very end. This may not be suitable for extended cellaring, but should be nice to watch progress through the end of this decade.

Barrel sample. Big, ripe fruits, spiced with new wood, a big-hearted blackberry wine, sweet tannins, potentially generous.

This is ripe, suave and polished, with a delicious beam of raspberry ganache, currant paste and fig, all laced with licorice and spice and carried by fresh acidity. There's nice latent grip, leaving a juicy feel on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 2,580 cases made.
