Interesting to try this in its infancy. Everything is there for a long life.

Tannins, leather, spice. Not as fruit driven as I'd expect. Excellent balance. Probably a keeper.

It is their flagship wine and comes from 40-70 year old vines and sits in French oak 15 months. Nose of; perfumed violets & Lavender, blueberries, blackberries, black plums and black licorice. This is clearly heavily selected fruit as it's beautifully ripe; blackberries, blueberries, black plum, black raspberries and raspberries pull up the rear as it sit on the palate awhile. The tannins are more elegant & softer. Black cherry cola, anise, dry stone, menthol, spices are softer...less heat. Cloves, nutmeg, dark chocolate, soft minerals& good acidity. Very polished finish that is ripe with just a bit of soft supple tannins. Photo of the main tasting bar.
