On clay, facing east, mostly from one block. One could say Sexton is the spiritual home vineyard of Giant Steps, perhaps.
Ripe and lush bouquet showing stewed cherry, malt, cinnamon but a whiff of spritely cranberry and green herb in the mix too. Fluffy-to-puckering tannins shape a sluice of malt-sprinkled dark cherry flavours, with a good sense of concentration, generosity, then a lightly puckering finish. Very enjoyable.
