“Quiet nose, with a bresaola scent. Then fresh tobacco leaf. More intense on the palate – dark semi-dried cherries, with a tremendous white-pepper lift through the roof of the palate. At first sip, I thought this would be fierce and sweet and compact, but it seems to unclench and uncurl itself, lengthen in the mouth, drawing long, super-fine tannins from a tightly folded pile. Layers of crackly tobacco-leaf spice and golden herb against the dark ripeness of the fruit. Seductive, graceful, and yet with slightly wicked playfulness.

What a delight!”
Jancis Robinson, 17 points
