Here’s one for the cellar, no doubt about it. Shows classic, old-fashioned Howell tannins, the kind that grip early and lock the palate down throughout. But you can’t help but be struck by the immensity of fruit. Massive in sweet blackberries and black currants, liberally oaked, and with a core of minerals, it will develop over the next ten years, at the very least. Cellar Selection.

Dark red. Expressive nose offers redcurrant, tobacco, loam, mocha and vanilla. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, with ripe acids giving shape to the redcurrant, iron and mocha flavors. Finishes with ripe tannins and decent length.
