Deep red with a transparent centre. Soft, sweet brambles on the muted nose. Layers of sweet fruit unfold themselves in the mouth, mixed in with gentle, soft tannins that grip but never overwhelm. A quick burst of alcohol on the aftertaste, but this settles into a big and flavoursome length that is dominated by the fruit. This is big and raw, with a lot of potential. 89-91.
