Unbelievably concentrated and complex wine. A transcendental experience. Despite the huge concentration, there is nothing oppressive. Beyond great, this is a different category of experience from even most top wines.
Really bright and surprisingly accessible nose with notes of blueberry, Satsuma plum, cedar, baked earth and violets. It is so dense and concentrated but remarkably well balanced and not heavy in the slightest. It is a wine of immense latent power and length is phenomenal. Best young Grange since the 1986 for mine.
The wine is clear with a extremely deep ruby core with a thin pale rime, it is very youthfull.
The nose i clean, medium intens (a bit too cold, would have changed it too medium+ but thats what i wrote). Aromas of leather, almond, raisins, floral notes of dark flowers, dark berries, black olives. This is incredible complex, very youthfull.
On the palate it is dry with medium aciddity and tannins. Medium+ % and high body and flavour intensity. Aromas is black olives, sweet candid berries, blackberries, toffee, cocoa, floral notes, very complex with a incredible long aftertaste.
This is an beautiful wine, balanced, powerfull intensity, lenght and aftertaste is just amazing. The complexity and concentration is unlike anything i have tasted from new world wines. This is truly like an dry port in a positive sense.
97-98p the only thing holding me from giving higher points is that it is a bit young for my taste, this has the potential to become a 100p wine if it develops in the right direction. Absolute beautiful wine.
Dark inky purple colored, medium to full bodied, powerful, concentrated but balanced and polished black berry and black cherry fruits hint of blue berry with dark spices, tones of smoke, anise, hints of tar and cedar with complex firm but smooth and polished lingering tannin finish. Needs some time to settle.
