    This Wine Is Rated:


    Quantity

    COLOUR: Deep and prominent – solid red

    NOSE:

    Where to start? So immediately true to variety. Punchy, not shy.

    Beneath: Subtle forest floor earthiness, laced with liquorice, fennel and anise with a sceric of non-aggressive fresh spearmint.

    Above: Sugar pastille wafts – somewhat reminiscent of the fruit bon bons of youth … more prescriptively/realistically – blackcurrant jelly bean.

    In between: Summer pudding fruit generosity – suggestive of a cherry clafoutis? Or maybe a fleshy red cherry trifle, avec sponge cake? Yes please.

    Absorbed: Stylish/coiffured oak … want to say classy, but might sound pretentious? Next time.

    PALATE:

    Bountiful red cabernet fruits complexed by cut tobacco (pouch) and darkened spices. Seamless, with a tightness/tension between acidity and tannins.

    These tannins are ripe and friendly – currently perceived as fruit, not oak tannins.

    Oak – quite possibly partially contributing to the sweetness apparent on palate?

    Flavour and length. Lingers.
