This is a smooth, well-flavoured wine with just enough of everything that counts. Pure blackcurrant and bay leaf flavours flow through the palate, creamy vanillin oak draped over the top. It's not full on but there's enough richness here to satisfy. The tannin profile, slightly grainy, suggests that it should mature well, too.
