Perhaps a little young, the tannins overcame the fruit on this one. A green note along with blackberries on the palate was somewhat offset by an imbalance in the acidity. I was not a huge fan of this bottle, and don’t see it evolving much even with its strong tannic frame. 85 points and for under a tenner, perhaps 3 stars. It might do for a BBQ with ribs slathered in sauce, or perhaps a grea-zee burger.
