Farr Vintners Pauillac 2010

93 2013-20

The black fruited nose is rich packed with blackcurrants and bramble and the palate has depth and concentration. There is mid sweetness a fleshy richness layers of fruit giving complexity yet a balancing freshness from the underlying bilberry. Coffee beans, liquorice and nutmeg all add to the interest and although the tannins are firm they are fine ripe not aggressive. The finish has intensity of flavour with just a hint of cedar wood behind the fruit.

Do decant if planning to drink soon and it will be even better next year
