Greatly enjoyed this fruity, deep wine. The nose was intense and full of berries and black fruit. The taste was again deep red cherries, red licorice and a little ingering cranberry flavour. Seems like the perfect time to drink this vintage.
Last time i drank this wine was 28 April 2013. Already a very good wine, showing its Great potential. Now, over 3 years later, it's peaking. Still dark red in colour, but the purple has vanished. Big nose, oak has integrated, dark ripe fruit, chocolate and caramel, hint of vanilla. Same palate, bit of sweetness, integrated oak, tremendous length. Delicious, drink now.
This improved a lot and has turned into a great wine. Complex and intense, developed fruit flavours ranging from blackberry to plums dominate and it's all fresh, clean and chocolatey smooth. 89-90. Very good now, perhaps peaking, but if I had more bottles I would be interested to see where it goes in 2-3 years. An interesting new world style here.
Still almost purple/red. Tastes young. Packed full with red and black fruits like blackberry, blueberry, black currant and also some slightly more ripe and developed, like prunes. Oak could use a bit more time to integrate well. Not so balanced, but rather a strong flavour profile. Give it 2 or 3 years more perhaps?
