Critique Review

Dark fruit, cinnamon and tomato leaf on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm tannins. Rich, juicy and textured with some herb and coffee notes. Balanced, flavorful finish. Drink or hold.

James Suckling, 2021

 

Sensations: the intense emphasis of its olfactory meld of black cherry and balsamic oak spices is persuasive, dense and deep. Peculiar aromas as a direct consequence of the excellent concentration of this sample and the harmony between acidity, tannins and softness of taste that are composed of round and pulpy fruit hints. A great and limpid wine with no trace of oxidation.
