Full-bodied, tannic yet always poised and polished. Length and depth. The seven per cent petit verdot makes this so interesting. Needs four to five years to come around. Try after 2024. collapse

With subtle oak (it was raised in 45% new oak), beautiful density and depth of fruit, and good acidity, it's a classic 2016 that will benefit from short-term cellaring. collapse

The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannins and gentle grip, though it tightens up toward the finish, where I would have liked more flesh and body. Maybe this is going through a sullen phase. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. -- Neal Martin collapse
