Light, cool-fruited but still ripe style. Successful.

5-6 hr decant and still definitely drinking very young. I’m on day 3 open now and a pretty dry leather cooked earth with a mixture of dry dirt and lavender fields, a touch of eucalyptus, roses, sun dried wet stones, and inky black fruit all waft into the nose. After a few more sniffs black cherry filled dark chocolate works it’s way in. It’s lovely. Almost chalky tannin structure that coats the top of the tongue with loads of acidity that wash that away down the sides. This has length in structure. The palate matches the nose pretty well and in similar order. A bit more leather, some potpourri and purity in the (black) fruit, minerality. This is lovely now, but may start hitting its full stride in 5-10 years and I can see it lasting another 10-20 years. I need more.

There are upsides to global warming; this bottle makes an excellent argument for Mosel Cabernet being one of them. Soft, plush palate. Nose is correct and tertiary aromas recall a bordeaux of around 15 years of age. Beautiful fruit & winemaking. Worth seeking out. A lovely surprise.
