Sk17: good structure but no fruit showing. Will age well.

B9: Dusty note on nose; plenty of fruit… This was to be my last tasting note of the night and I didn’t exactly finish it! I recall it had the expected fruit than the corked bottle at a previous tasting (clearly) missed. Would be wrong to rate it but certainly nothing wrong with it or I would have written so!

Some dark fruits, cranberries, chocolate and spice. Strongly dominated by the tannins in the mouthfeel. Quite closed, but opened up with more time in the glass. Potential.
