James Suckling

I like the spice and tar character with ripe fruit and hints of stones. Full body, black pepper and cloves. Rich and flavorful. No wood. Drink now.

The 2011 SONHADOR HOWARD’S FOLLY just screams "elegance" at you. Graceful and understated, its texture is velvety and there is not a hair out of place. It finishes with juicy fruit and bursts of flavor. The ripe tannins give it a "drink-me-now" feel, Don’t ogle this debonair wine, just drink it. You’ll be happy.

Healthy crimson. Mellow nose and fully resolved palate of sweet, nicely combined fruit and mineral notes. Very good balance of ripeness and freshness. Thoroughly satisfying. Lightly, attractively, dusty on the persistent finish.

Using awesome raw materials, brilliant winemaking (David Baverstock) and affording staggering value for money, you are unlikely to find a more complete, succulent and layered red wine anywhere in the world for the same cash.
