This wine has an attractive deep color, the sign of a wine that is rich in phenolic compounds. On the nose, there are massive amounts of fruit aromas intermixed with very subtle spicy aromas, the sign of perfectly ripe grapes. The attack is silky and round, developing density but remaining fresh. Concentrated fruity flavors come through with lovely ripe tannins, providing good body on the mid-palate. The whole is both rich and silky; the length of flavors is amazing, leaving a finish packed with flavor, which is not at all drying. The ageing in barrel should provide extra aromatic complexity and roundness. The aim is to preserve the balance, freshness and juicy crispness of this wine.
Aromas of plums and chocolate with hints of spices. Full body, with velvety tannins and a clean finish. Lots of cedar and nuts with fruit on the finish. Better in 2016.
Bright, with a high-pitched damson plum and red currant core, followed by bitter orange, savory and iron notes on the finish. A pleasant combination of austerity and sleekness. Drink now through 2025.
