JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
This is no pushover in the company of The Armagh, and it's a whole lot easier to enjoy, even though the day for each is long off. Here the fruits are rounder, the tannins following suit - even touches of red/purple fruits here. Once again, a wine to be respected. And enjoyed.
There’s a vibrant red-fruit core and this has such impressive depth and structure with a vibrant, lightly spicy plum palate, as well as dark berries. Fluid palate with a rich and assertive core of raspberries and red plums. Full body. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW
Deep, dark colour and a strong toasty oak boquuet, walnuts, freshly-turned earth and dried spices. The wine is full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with very good density and length. A complete, full-bodied wine, with generous supple tannins. Impressive.
