17+ Points –
Blend of the three Fat of the Land wines (Seppeltsfield, Greenock and Ebenezer). Deep black, with some purple tints. Needs coaxing from the glass. Layered cinnamon-clove oak, chocolate, bacon fat and dense, baked black fruit. Minty touch to dense, super-ripe black palate fruit. Spice, chocolate and savoury tones. Big structure.
