Plenty of attention seems to have been lavished on this wine produced from the best parcels on the estate. It offers dense tannins, new-wood mint flavors and an edge of extraction in the bitter-chocolate flavors. With time this will be a rich wine, but one balanced and based around fruit and tannins. Drink from 2023.
