Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Fragrant, complex Cab nose. Leafy, cassis, pencil shavings notes. Complex, quite fine palate with slightly tart edge and good tannin structure. Elegant foil with the food

Stuart Halliday
Dried herbal nose, slight medicinal flavours on the palate, some chewy green tannins. A far better wine with introduction of food. The tannins have something to meld and hang onto

Oliver Masters
Medium dark red, lifted with hints of cassis and red currents, quite tight linear palate, gentle fruit sweetness. Still looking quite tight with sirloin dish

Natasha Hughes
Bright, herbaceous nose. Some concentration of dark fruit on mid palate, with chalky tannins and bright acidity. Long.

Corey Ryan
Crimson in colour, leafy cedar and savoury dried herb aromas. Chewy very textural and structural Cab style, robust flavours. Lacks generosity. The beef dish highlights further the tannins of the Cab the complexity of the promoted.

Matthew Deller
Medium dark. Classical and vinous, with cassis, cedar, cigar box, pyrazine and clove oak. Solidly and austerely structured with good density, crisp, cooling, mineral acidity and strong, firm, refined tannins. Good length. Very Bordelaise. The classical structure of the wine works well with food, though alcohol is accentuated.
