This is a majestic wine, intense, and ethereal, with notes of bay leaf and distillate-cured cherries. The impressive balance between all its components makes it ideal for long-term aging.
While this is heady and spicy, it’s also quite reserved for this producer, framing glazed cherries and dried meat against a backdrop of citrus and roasted herbs. The ornately woven texture and generous fruit work very well with the linear acidity and firm-tannin bite. Really excellent.
Dense, earthy and concentrated, yet well-honed in its fruit, tannin and new oak; with some ageing time ahead.
