Big, bold, serious and built to age in bottle, this is a compact, weighty Cabernet Sauvignon with 70% new oak, firmish tannins and a core of dark damson and cassis fruit complemented by notes of mocha, coffee bean and refreshing acidity. 2020-28.

The 2013 Peter Barlow, matured exactly the same as the 2012, comes from a much cooler season. It has a less intense bouquet, perhaps with fine delineation with blackberry, blueberry and melted tar aromas, developing quite complex dried violet petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite saline in the mouth with black fruit mixed with a subtle marine influence. It perhaps just needs a little more persistence on the finish, but otherwise I am intrigued to see how this will age. It might just have the edge over the 2012 Peter Barlow.
