Juicy, modern style, with mocha, blackberry, fig and boysenberry flavors mingling with tar and mineral notes. Firm finish has plenty of pure fruit for balance, and this gains steam in the glass too. Drink now through 2013. 6,700 cases made. —James Molesworth
Ripe and concentrated, but lovely freshness too, with mint, blackberry, toast and spice notes pumping through from start to finish. Long, mocha-tinged finish. Drink now through 2008. 1,400 cases imported. —James Molesworth
