Edgebaston The Pepper Pot 2016

91 pts James Suckling - Medium body, lots of clear and linear fruit, a fine line of acidity and a pretty finish.

Tasting Notes

Fuller bodied, this has an engaging smooth and supple texture with a core of juicy dark red berry fruit flavors accentuated with spice and pepper notes. This plays a perfect balance between the vibrant fruit flavors and savory notes with ripe, perfectly integrated tannins bringing this to an impressive finish. Showing well as we speak this should bring a lot of pleasure over the next couple of years. This represents excellent value.

Brambleberries, black peppers, orange rind and spice box. Medium body, lots of clear and linear fruit, a fine line of acidity and a pretty finish. A blend of 60% syrah, 14% carignan, 11% tannat, 7% mourvedre, 5% cinsault and 3% grenache. Drink now. Screw cap.

91 pts Vinous/Neil Martin Aug 2018
The 2016 The Pepper Pot has a light blackberry and cranberry bouquet that is nicely integrated with the oak (used and foudres). The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a lovely grainy texture and a subtle gamy note that comes through on the finish. Delicious and utterly drinkable!
