James Suckling 90 FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
Bright, red-fruit aromas with sappy and spicy complexity, leading to a palate that has a bright, energetic and slightly tangy fruit finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Precise and sleekly built, with floral black raspberry and tea aromas and deftly balanced dark cherry flavors, accented by a lively briary note. Drink now through 2023. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 800 cases made.
