The vivid crimson colour that welcomes you to this wine betrays its concentration and ripeness. Elegant and extremely classy French oak aromas greet your nose, along with sweet spices, cinnamon and cedar.
Flowing through to the palate, your taste buds are met by a mellow, rich wine with ripe blueberries and damson plum flavours. Currently it’s youthful and explosively rich with primary brightness melded with subtle oak toastiness.
As it evolves in the cellar I see layers of complexity revealing themselves and the opulence maturing into more subtle flavours. It’s a show-stopper right now though!
Altogether, this is an extremely harmonious wine with a succulence, making it the perfect accompaniment for high-grade Wagyu steak or slow roast lamb.
