DecanterVibrant, ripe blackberry plus delicate notes of rose, a gorgeously silky texture and sweet-spice finish. I tasted the seven parcels that make up this final wine and it is clear that there's a sensational synergy in the blending.
BurghoundThere is whiff of new wood framing the intensely floral-suffused nose and in particular rose petal and lavender that add elegance to the fresh mix of mostly red and dark currant scents that are trimmed in discreet earth hints. There is a lovely sense of energy to the moderately dense middle weight plus flavors that culminate in a dusty, palate coating and beautifully long finish. At this point in its maturity and with this specific blend of components I would describe the 2014 version as understated and harmonious if less elegant than the 2013 was at the same point. We will of course see what ultimately is bottled but for now this seems very promising.
