Taste Jeremy Oliver says: Full bodied with great intensity, amazing freshness and extraordinary concentration, the multi-layered palate displays the fruit purity that only the most fastidious farming can achieve. Hints of homemade marmalade, scorched earth and slow roasted meats later emerge with time in the glass. typically arresting modern Torbreck red with a meaty, spicy and chocolatey presence of dark plums, blackberries, currants and roasted, gamy oak. It's slightly baked but silky-smooth, voluptuous and sweet-fruited, with chocmint liqueur-like undertones and a moderate length of fruit supported by ultra-fine but slightly unconvincing tannins, finishing with meaty and slightly stewy influences. Delicious for the short to medium term.
