Where to start? So immediately true to variety. Punchy, not shy.
Beneath: Subtle forest floor earthiness, laced with liquorice, fennel and anise with a sceric of non-aggressive fresh spearmint.
Above: Sugar pastille wafts – somewhat reminiscent of the fruit bon bons of youth more prescriptively/realistically – blackcurrant jelly bean.
In between: Summer pudding fruit generosity – suggestive of a cherry clafoutis? Or maybe a fleshy red cherry trifle, avec sponge cake? Yes please.
PALATE Bountiful red cabernet fruits complexed by cut tobacco (pouch) and darkened spices.Seamless, with a tightness/tension between acidity and tannins.These tannins are ripe and friendly – currently perceived as fruit, not oak tannins.Oak – quite possibly partially contributing to the sweetness apparent on palate?Flavour and length. Lingers.
