Good medium red. Spicy cherry and redcurrant aromas. Juicy and precise, with good freshness and cut. Offers a lovely fruit/acid balance. With modest stuffing, this comes across as fairly tannic, but the finish is bright and persistent.

A wonderful nose of wild strawberry, cherry and orange zest, that become more minerally the more you nose it. Superb definition. Not a powerful palate, but very fresh and earthy, with brambly red fruits, morello cherry, cranberry and a touch of redcurrant towards the finish. Moderate complex, perhaps not a long-term proposition, but utterly delicious to drink, which is why it was made after all. 5,807 bottles produced. Tasted June 2004.
