This wine is made to age, but fine to drink now - however you wish! Big nose, in your face. More fruit on the nose here, ripe blackberries with earthy undertones and some hidden minerality. Rich but clean. The fruit is dark, but fresh. Hidden baking spice. Let me give this some air (decant is key!) Such a vibrant colour. Stony minerality lingers and twists. Tastes so good after some air, quite rich and ripe but restrained. Very nice line and drive, this wine is serious and confident. Later on you get an almost iron-rich minerality on both nose and palate. The last sip tastes so good, still rich but restrained - The most serious of their wines, but also one of the most interesting.
