Platter * * * * – Softly ripe, warm & seamless & well made if unexciting. Decent grip from 2 years in mostly American oak checks overtly sweet impression from both alcohol & fruit.
On the nose summer fruits, cassis, fennel, mint, dark, bitter chocolate and warm toasty oak. The palate is all about chunky, chewy, magically integrated tannin. This rewarding mouth-feel is complemented by concentrated flavours of youngberry, cassis, blueberry, wild mint and chocolate
