Martin Docherty, Senior Relationship Manager
Loads of complexity; dark plum, smoky chocolate, saline finish.
Although it’s the expressive Cabernet that’s the highlight, the estate’s 100yr Merlot vines bring a layer of velvety red fruit.
Ripe, concentrated with balancing acidity; this is a gem in the making!
This 4th Growth often hits above its weight and a well-structured 2021 should only get better with age.
On a hot streak since new ownership in 2012, the Cabernet-heavy 2021 bubbles with classic aromas of cassis and violet.
