This wine has a very smooth, pruny black fruit profile with a dollop of sugar on the tongue. High alcohol notwithstanding, the balance is also good with a long finish that is not particularly warm. A very good, Grenache-based wine with good body and character. Tasted at the 2010 Vancouver International Wine Festival.
The appearance of this wine is brilliant; it really glistens in the glass when poured. A very deep, concentrated red with a very dark centre and edges of red-toned hues suggesting a full-bodied oak matured wine. The initial aromas are dominated with fragrant red fruits over spices and liquorice/earthy notes. As it breathes more obvious notes of loganberries, cranberry and mulberry fruits with maraschino cherry, dark chocolate and intense plum notes. There is an impressive background of fine-grain, cedary oak notes. The palate is immense and beautifully structured with complex layers of exotic fruit flavours mixed with silky fine acidity. The mineral edged tannins are superb, almost elegant. Ripe red-fleshed cherries and dark ripe plums, spice and bell peppers are mixed with summer flowers. Dried herbs such as jasmine & lavender linger on and on; the finish has excellent intensity. Let it sit in a decanter and a continuous stream of characters will evolve.
