Tasting notes

04/10/2012

Prominent vanilla oak, black cherry, liquorice, redcurrant and violet perfume. A powerful wine with remarkably good integration of judicious oak and dark cherry fruit. Very juicy and lifted by acidity, this shows a classic New World style. Drink: 2012-2017 Alc: 14.5%. (17 points)
