Aromatically speaking, the wine brings out a whole range of delicious stuff, from graphite to blackberry and plum, herbal notes, candied orange peel and even some beautiful floral touches that come out as the wine opens up. It’s a beautiful mouthful, with all the stuffings (and then some) to balance out the 14% alcohol. Tannins are substantial, but fine and well-supported by plummy dark fruit and a mineral character that only old vines (the youngest in this case are 40-years old) can provide. For an in depth review go to The Wine Case.
