92-93 points for me. Mature and doubt it will get much better but there is a lot of years left in these before they start to slide. Drunk right after a La Chapelle and Chapoutier La Sizeranne this would have easily passed as N. Rhone. Ample dark fruit, black pepper, iron.
Integrated and at its peak... Black fruit, tar, pastrami, iron, pepper, smoke, touch of petrol. Sweet tannins, deep texture, long finish. A delicious wine. We drank several different Sadie Family wines last summer in South Africa and they were well made, interesting, world class wines. The whites, blends of old vine unusual varieties are well worth looking for as well.
Andra gången jag provar Eben Sadies underbara Columnella. Kraftig doft av läder och söta bär. Smaken en lång med vissa tanniner. På topp nu och något år framåt. Looking forward to next bottle. Well done!
Decanted 1 hour. Ripe, masculine nose, blackberry, acetone, fruitcake, nutmeg, cracked black pepper. Nice mix of sweet fruit and spice. Palate is full-bodied, complex, and impressively balanced, juicy, ripe strawberry and blackberry, a mineral and acid streak in midpalate, good dry tannins on the finish. In its prime but will last several years. Drink now-2020.
