From a site earmarked originally for a prison, but 'better suited to vines than villains', the very classy 2019 vintage (5*) is a powerful, densely coloured, sturdy red. Fragrant, it is drenched with deliciously ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, with a firm backbone of tannin, and lovely richness and harmony. Drink over the next 20 years.
