B1: A lovely citrusy sweet top note to its mixed red/black fruits. Supple, fruit driven. A good early drinking prospect. A balanced ripeness and attractive already. [Noval. Quite similar in some ways to the 16, although more a stone fruit/apricot top note in the 16).

Red cherries on the nose, more cherries (black) on the palate. Eucalyptus and spice in the mix and an enjoyable finish. V good

(Tasted sighted) Deep crimson, expressive floral nose of blackcurrant a little spice on the nose (black pepper). A little eucaluptus adds to complexity. Rich full bodied wine with fruit driven notes. A little alcohol but not unbalanced. Good strong finish. Very good. 95+
