A Matter of Taste: London Edition (Saatchi Gallery, Chelsea): Explosive layers of cranberry, sweet spice and red velvet on the nose; backwards, monstrous & primary, only hinting at the level to which this should soar; concentrated but not extracted; chewy tannins; tremendous balance; no oak; continued to develop with air.
Quite tawny in colour. A lot more savoury on the nose than the Mas La Plana before. Very expressive, less ripe, more complex, tobacco, forest notes, hints of mushrooms, spices. On the palate elegant, fresh, very well balanced. Still a bit tight and drying. Very long, spicy finish. Excellent 93-94+
