Decanted for an hour. Garnet hue. Nose of red soft fruit preserve carried forward into ripe but elegant red berry fruit flavours with merest hint of toast, liquorice and über smooth integrated tannins. Sophisticated, racy, medium bodied and at plateau now and for probably 2+ years. Moorish.
Decanted for an hour. Rich-styled garnet, with a violet overtone, leading to a crimson rim. Flower shop, dark cherry, blackberry, cedar, ginger and river stones. Very stylish on the silky-framed palate with tannins that are meek, yet, still there. So soft, this is not unctuous, showing more class than anything else. There's no need to wait and definitely worthy next to Heitz Martha's or even Don Melchor; excellent for the vintage. Drink now - 2019.
Unfortunately it was corked. New oak was evident and there was enough fruit to support it. Body was surprisingly for me just medium to full and tannic and acid structure promise a long aging. Fruit aromas were surely subdued by cork but it still was evident that this is a great hedonistic wine.
