Assemblage Reichan Barkan 2012

External Review:

A deep, shiny red-purple color.On the nose the hints of mint are woven together with the cassis and the chocolate to create an enticing aroma of a mint-chocolate candy. Surprising earthiness combined with cloves, cinnamon and marzipan add elegant richness and complexity to the wine. After a short decantation the wine continues to develop, revealing a flowery, different and interesting bouquet.The mouth presents ripe black-purple fruit. A fresh acidity and firm tannins which balance the sweetish fruit. The wood is apparent, but only gently so, and in balance with the other components of the taste, and the finish is long and pleasant. Despite the wine being balanced from the first mouthful, decantation allows it to soften and reveal additional layers of fruit which add complexity and strength to the wine, with the elegance lingering throughout the drinking experience.
