Bosky perfume but with a touch of jewelled and (still) oh-so bright cranberry fruit. The fruit has a lustrous glow, like looking at a ruby through firelight. All the wood has melted into the fruit. Little smudges of truffle and mace. It tastes like a rain soaked red maple leaf pressed into the winter-cold terracotta tile of a very old roof.
The flavours diffuse through your mouth, like walking through soft mist in autumnal woods with your tongue out. A lesson in ageing these wines… ?
Nutty, slightly foliar and slightly spicy fragrance of ripe red and a little black berries with tobacco, earthy and tarry notes. Ripe, quite juicy fruit, again with tobacco and spicy aromas, a hint of smoke on the palate, present, ripe and relatively mellow tannin, good substance and persistence, has power and warmth, certain depth, nutty tones, very good, quite firm, juicy and spicy finish.
