I didn’t take many notes on this wine, and if I did then I’m not exactly sure where they are right now, but I remember it perfectly well and don’t feel the need to go long on the fruit salad descriptors because this wine is all about structure and length. It’s tight and fine, only medium bodied really, with a bright mulberry and blackcurrant sort of fruit character, a slight but pleasant leafiness that’s both Cabernet and regional and tasteful cedar/vanilla oak in support. Pretty too. The thing that struck me though, was just how long and controlled it was through the mouth. I tasted other wines next to it and they looked distinctly clumsy and abbreviated. Perhaps not the most exciting of wines at present, more subdued and classy, but it’s going to be magic in the long term. Drink 2019-2030+.
