The colour is different in this one, intense earthy dried blood. Soft aromas of peppered, freshly pressed redcurrants, prunes, spices, warmed raw sugar at the bakery. Touch of VA though? Smooth velvet texture, a full-bodied wine that is not for the meek mouthed since it tips the scale at 15.5% alc. Lively acidity, youthful plush tannins prop up the plentiul characteristics of this wine but do not intrude into the foreground. Lush, rich flavours of prunes, blackcurrants and red plums, with lingering notes of 60% dark chocolate. A very nice, interesting wine. Drink now – 2019. 260 bottles produced. 91/100.
