Vintage 2016: “Juicy and vibrant with plush red and purple fruit. Ripe and delicious. Moreish cola notes with deep red rose petal aromas. Brimming with juicy black cherry, liquorice and sweet spice flavour. This screams, “Drink me!” 95 points – Peter Nixon, DMWP
Vintage 2016: “Bottle number 4648, suitably heavyweight. A Spanish speciality, with the high-toned red berry fruits of the mid-palate on song, and gently savoury spices to finish – perhaps a little too gently.” 91 points – James Halliday
