Day one: gripping tannins; the intense garrigue that was prevalent upon release is largely gone. Still there were hints of garrigue integrated with (dried) dark fruit e.g. some prune but in a unoffensive way. Medium finish.
Day two: tannins more approachable. Still a nice wine; time will tell how tannins resolve themselves.
Deeply coloured, ruby red with black core. Rich bright Grenache nose, minerals, sweet fruits, fragrant, inky. Medium weight, supple, creamy texture with a big finish of blueberry essence and with powerful fine furry tannins. Ink, tar, pepper, plums, zesty mineral spice. Rich, youthful, and very long. Complex now, age may soften it but perhaps unlikely to improve it. Superb now.
Coravined. Deep red with purple highlights. After about 30 min in the glass, the nose is greeted with very expressive aromas of dark currants, black cherries, licorice, camphor and charcoal. A full bodied palate reveals concentrated ripe black fruits, good depth and flesh on the mid-palate, low to medium acidity and a long finish that hides the grippy tannins in the background.
Garnet color in the glass, fairly clear looking. Nose of leather, pepper, berries and a bit of licorice. Flavors of berries, Bing cherries and raspberries. Medium to bright acidity, medium to firm tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink or hold.
