- The Wine
This is a superb wine. This is a wine that should be treasured and enjoyed with only your closest friend. If that happens to mean drinking alone then this is the wine for that.
After enjoying the beautiful colours of the wine you come to the nose. It is one of those wines that you can sniff and relish for ever. Aromas of red and black cherry predominate with some mature herbal notes, both medicinal and mint. There are bananas and blackcurrant with stewed plums and cedar wood. The spices are active, especially cloves, with underlying hints of rubber and dark chocolate.
On the palate the deep, dark, fruits continue and the spices remain in the forefront with white pepper and juniper being quite pronounced. The herbal flavours are still there and the flavours are held together by the lovely smooth texture and the strong, but not harsh, tannins. The finish is very long with flavours changing throughout.
This is an extremely well-crafted wine that has no right still being available. Get it now before I drink it all!
