A third of the blend saw new French oak. Opening with dark cherries and black currants, things brighten up to show strawberries and some red fruits. Get in deep with some density, a little tension and a pleasant weight coats the mouth wonderfully. Fine spices glide through, but the standout feature for me was how this developed over a couple of days. The trap we all fall into too often is drinking wines well before their peak. Hold off here. Just sit and get stuck into Eldridge's PTG if you need to wet your whistle right now (if you can find it). Patience will reward here friends - trust me.
