Tuesday, July 27, 2021 - I am a fan of the wines of Elian da Ros and this is his top cuvée. However I don't think I've ever previously brought to table a bottle of it less than 10 years old and at present this seems like unfinished business compared with some of its predecessors. Its best feature was its bouquet on the nose; rich red fruit, fragrant and complex. By comparison the medium/full palate seemed less seamless and less eloquent. The same rich fruit was present with a savoury touch together with a certain earthiness and fresh acidity leading at this stage to a firmer and more tannic finish than I recall from previous vintages and a touch of dry caramel which may come from the élevage. I expect that this will come together further down the line and sing superbly as the nose does already. Good right now.
