Dark spice initially with vanilla and some sweet spice emerging with air time. Black fruit and an overall sweetness to the front of the palate but this finishes with a little too much heat for me which detracted from the overall experience. May yet improve with time. 93+
MNSC - Alex (Country Club Grill): decanted half an hour before serving. great from the word go. no signs of fading even after a couple of hours. alluring perfume coupled with great structure. a winner!
This is one of the best wines of the year thus far. The nose was good with some leather, smoked meats, earth and spice mixing it up with vibrant fruit and flora notes. The palate was superb. It had a silky texture and delicious flavours of Turkish delight and black fruits. It was full and rich and cut by crisp acidity. It had superb length of flavour finishing with real savoury nuance.
