Love this wine. Complex with lots of layers but did seem a little restrained at first. Definitely opened up a lot during dinner. Colour: Deep garnet, almost completely opaque. Aroma: A little muted, some dark cherry and some smoke Taste: a bit of spice, good acidity and balance, fruit evolved as it opened up.


Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 La Bruma (the "fog or mist") is a young'un. It will provide much enjoyment on release if you pop the cork and drink straight away. But this is a wine that will engage all of your senses with 5 years or more in bottle. It has the structure, the depth of fruit and the breed to be a superior wine. La Bruma is a blend of clones 1 (24%), Estrella (23%), 470 (19%), 174 (15%), and a suitcase selection (19%) that we call P². Blocks were picked, vinified and aged separately for 15 months in 24% new french oak barrels and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The alcohol is 13.9%. The nose has medium to high intensity with red fruit and floral notes. Smoke, lavender and nicoise black olive tapenade aromas intermingle with cinnamon and other brown spices around a black raspberry core. On the palate La Bruma is powerful and smooth with fine silky tannins. Aromas of boar sausage, cured meat and guava build in the mid-palate. The finish is very long with lingering notes of mocha and marionberries. The 2006 La Bruma has more depth and is less peppery than the superb 2005. Drink now without a significant decant or age for 5+ years for maximum pleasure.
