Solid dense purple black. Lush ripe fruit, almost too ripe, morello cherries here, more at the front of the palate, drier behind. Still reasonably in balance but heading towards the riper end of the scale.

No stems. One-year-old barrels. Pure and dancing, scented, pretty, tight, finely textured but shut down a little on the palate at the moment, apparently. Amazing freshness. And length. Tight, mouth-watering, captivating, hard to move on. Amazing persistence.
