So many people have told me how good of a wine this is or how delicious I will find it, my sommelier gave the largest smile when I asked him his verdict, and my point to all of this is that that fills me with such anxiety because now my hopes are very, very high!
Well fear not my fellow followers...it delivered on every step of the way!
A deep garnet, purple colour that clung gently to the side of the glass.
I let this wine breath for an hour before tasting it.
On the nose there was an abundance of black fruits. Black currants, wild blueberries, baking spices of Cinamon and nutmeg and a subtle pepper note.
On the palate, again full of black fruits. blackberries, black currants and wild blueberries. As the fruits subside they give way to a hedgerow presence, earthy mineral soil. Just as you think you have this wine all figured out the note of leather, old and worn rather charismatically steps forward. There is a full dry mouth that reveals well balanced acidity and then allows a mild pepper note to introduce itself before the final punch of cocoa. Gorgeous tannins . Delicious!
