Nine Popes, Charles Melton, 75cl
Deeply coloured. Spicy fragrant nose. Real depth and tightness. The wine was aged in predominantly French oak barriques of which 35% was new. This is a serious cellaring wine. Mix of spice, liquorice and other complex flavours leavened by some sweeter talc like perfume that will evolve into a seductive long term style.

"Chocolate and leather notes join plums and spices on the nose of this serious wine. 'Meaty, bloody and brooding, with soft plum fruit and a long finish,' said team leader Nigel Lister." SWA 2014
