Engaging aromatics make this wine immediately attractive in the nose. The perfume is lovely and floral, with hints of violet and creamy raspberry. The wine is a glorious deep purple, instantly appealing in the glass, and doesn’t disappoint on the palate. The ripe, plummy fruit presents itself very well, but there is a sense of restraint here. This wine really plays to the strengths of the vintage with soft, juicy fruit dominating. This is not a big wine, although there is some weight – it is a lot like other 2014s in that respect – but satisfying, sweet fruit is present. This will be a joy to drink early. The finish is crisp and nicely refreshing.
