Tasting Notes

2/19/19
Lovely aromatic lift on the nose with notions of dark cherry and plum nuanced with notes of cinnamon/oak spice, subtle vanilla and a touch of dark chocolate aromatically. Medium fuller to fuller bodied, as this opens up it gains suppleness and coats the palate with a mélange of dark red fruit flavors touched up with a spice note on the finish. This has good depth and the fresh underlying acidity gives this drive and vibrancy while the ripe, nicely integrated tannins, promise good mid-term ageing. This shows well out the gate, but with patience this will blossom into a real beauty. The strength of the vintage comes forth and this is one of the better versions we have tried in awhile for this wine. Not yet reviewed we expect some impressive reviews in the not so distant future.

Food Accompaniments

Grilled beef, roasted leg of lamb


Winemaker Notes

The wine shows flavours of vanilla from barrel maturation combined with strawberry and ripe plum on the nose. Red fruit flavours follow on the palate. The wine is elegant with a fine tannin structure and a long finish.
