Bibich Mantra 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very pencil leady and chalky on the nose with a narrow, focused note of earthy strawberry fruit and a touch of wet dog and seaweed. There is an underlying jammy warmth here and gentle notes of faded backing spices/middle eastern spice, turmeric, cardamom, green anise seed. Sweetly fruited right up front with a nice old vine feel in the mouth. Great acidity balanced all that fruit and while the wine is fresh with a golden raspberry tone there is a curious under current of baked fruit/ clay/ oxidation that recalls some old school Rioja. Tannins are very soft. A nice juicy red with flavors that are a touch indistinct. 87pts
