Medal / AwardGold
Judge 1Purple red, black fruits, rich plummy palate with black fruit, firm tannins
Judge 2great layering on the nose, spices, deep fruit and intensity, a little tight and would've liked to see a bit more juiciness
Judge 3Deep dark red. Nutty oak. Rich red fruits and mint. Rich, full bodied style. Firm tannin finish
Associate Judgea touch close but good red fruit aromatics coming through, then some more textural nose with some christmas cake and vanilla. On the palate a bit dry with some oak impact.
