Sipping Fine Wine

Blend of Cab Sauv & Monastrell with some Mourvèdre, Mataro & Garrut. Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe red and black fruits with some floral and spice. On the palate flavors of sweet cherry and black raspberry with notes of cacao and currants with underlying citrus. Big firm tannins needing time to soften, good acidity balance, medium+ finish ending with fruit and vanilla oak.

Fair amount of oak on the nose: vanilla, dill, mint, smoke, coconut. Some currant in there as well.

Concentrated fruit on the palate, but oak dominates with similar notes to the nose. Tannins are still pretty astringent.

Probably needs another 5-8 years for the oak and tannins to settle down and come into its own, bit still tasty with hard cheese.

It’s robust, good hint of smokiness.

First sip, I thought light on palette, but few sips afterwards firmed up.

Solid red.
