Review and Tasting
Sampled on 10/03/2021
Clear, deep garnet red.
Ripe red fruit and cocoa with an attractive oakiness and very delicate spice.
Ripe berry fruit tamed and made complex by beautifully balanced dry oak tannin complexity. Faint notes of cocoa and coffee.
Long lingering interplay between rich red fruit and dry oaky tannins
Rich red berry fruit garnished with cocoa bean and balanced and made special by layers of tea-like tannins and dry faintly smoky toasty oak.
