What we say
Deep ruby red colour. The fine, complex nose is filled with rich blackcurrant, strawberry and plum aromas with delicate floral notes. On the palate, the wine has a smooth velvety texture supported by firm and well-integrated tannins. The intense flavours of dark berry fruits persist with a long finish. This is a complex, multidimensional wine with the classic Taylor elegance, balance and finesse and is drinking wonderfully now.
What they say
Deep purple ruby colour. Pungent aromatic nose of black woodland fruit, dark cherry and plum with some balsamic herbal scents and a hint of exotic wood. Lovely clean, crisp freshness to the bouquet. The palate is rounded, smooth and well balanced. Flavours of redcurrant, raspberry and blueberry in abundance, with a delicious hint of black liquorice, violets and lovely spice. In true Taylor style, the wine is very well structured with big firm tannins that hold the wine nicely together.
