Red - big, bold, full-bodied

Palate

The palate is very youthful and vibrant. Tightly coiled at this still rather embryonic developmental stage. Firm, puckering tannins are slatey and powdery, mineral like, promising to hold for the long-term. Oak is standing sentry over the buoyant young fruit, making sure everyone marches to the same tune... present, creamy even, but far from overt, cedar and tobacco pouch notwithstanding. For all the structural descriptors, it is surprisingly approachable now with a real gloss to the palate. Contemporary, a wine of the times. Cherry and black fruits tussle for attention. A wild concoction of fruits des bois fresh and a touch tart. Spiced berry compote, blackberries with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. A mouthfeel and texture akin to cured pork pancetta and Mediterranean char-grilled meats
