Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Inky red colour. Ripe mulberry and herbal notes. Bright cassis palate, quite powerful, ripe and long with slightly tart edge. Looked a little young/raw and tart with the food

Stuart Halliday
Big and bold, firm meaty tannin structure, ripe fruit, big oak, no shrinking violet this wine, certainly benefits with the introduction of food

Oliver Masters
Dark red, primary dark ripe red currents and plum stone on nose, dense sweet fruit focused palate, tight fine tannins. Good match with beef cheek.

Natasha Hughes
Baked, porty style. Lacks freshness. A bit heavy handed. Warm finish.

Corey Ryan
Deep crimson colour, lifted blue fruits and jammy aromas. A big fleshy very ripe wine, lacks freshness and focus, blocky tannins. The beef cheek dish brings out the green undertones to the wine.

Matthew Deller
Dark/black appearance. Cassis, dark fruits, dried mint and herbs, graphite, cedar, clove cinnamon oak. Very dense, with good concentration, fresh, cooling acidity and strong, refined tannins. Good length, austere finish. Food accentuates the impressive concentration of the wine, and the refinement of the tannins.
