Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Inky. Cassis, mocha and herbal lift. Powerful Cab nose. Rich cassis, silky palate texture, classy oak flavours and v good length. Oak slightly dominant on the finish and showed up more with the food

Stuart Halliday
Lovely aromas of cassis and blackcurrant, powerful tannins, but good integration of oak, fruit and tannins, a wine of great power and strength

Oliver Masters
Dark red, red current and cassis nose, fine tight dry palate. Good match with beef cheek.

Natasha Hughes
Lashings of sweet oak on the nose as well as some ripe dark fruit. Some aromatic complexity, and chalky tannins. A youthful wine that should age well. Long and perfumed.

Corey Ryan
Deep crimson colour, lifted dried herbs and cassis aromas. Chewy textural robust wine rounded chunky tannins. Solid fruits and structure, drying finish. The beef cheeks bring out the greener/leafy flavours of the wine.

Matthew Deller
Dark/black appearance. Ripe, dark and dried fruit nose, dried mint, blackberry jelly, vanilla, clove oak. Dense, concentrated palate with lavish creaminess in the middle, fresh acidity, then very strong, austere tannins. Good length, very austere, serious graphite finish. Food accentuates the oak, green acidity and tannins in the wine.
