About the wine

Tasting notes

It has a fragrant and quite floral bouquet, wilted rose petals intertwined with red berry fruit, touches of sage in the background, later damp loam. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, beautifully balanced with the greatest precision on the finish. Excellent.

Expert review

There is enough wood to notice on the big-bodied flavors that possess fine concentration and exceptionally good richness as there is so much extract that this is almost chewy. This is a powerful example with excellent size, weight and punch, all wrapped in a lingering finish where the only nit is a trace of warmth. If you have the discipline to wait for this to mature it should be outstanding in time. Outstanding.
