>> "A notably complex, ripe and really quite pretty nose offers up an array of violet, plum, earth, exotic tea and fresh dark berry fruit scents. There is good richness to the equally earth, intense and well-detailed middle weight flavours that possess good maturity of the supporting structural elements, all wrapped in a balanced, mildly rustic and solidly persistent finish. This is a very fine villages and recommended. 88-91 points (Scores a "heart" to indicate one of Allen's perennial favourites)."
