When to drink
Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Peak drinking window now - 2026.
Pink peppercorn, chargrilled zucchini and barbequed red meats is the instant perfume. Cedar and lavender incense waft in the background.
Taut in texture, fine tannin with a savoury profile. Cranberry represents the red fruit spectrum, with lingering flavours of yellow plum, bay leaf and sage. Root vegetable earthiness is evident on the finish. Structurally framed by beautifully integrated French and American oak, present but rarely mentioned.
