Tasting Notes

A wine with great ageing potential, the 2011 has a perfumed nose of crushed rose petals and sweet strawberries with deeper black currant and morello cherry characters in the background. The palate is rich and layered with gorgeous, dark cherry fruit flavours balanced by smooth, velvety tannins and refreshing acidity. Exotic spices, truffles and a hint of dark chocolate add a further layer of depth and complexity. This very complex wine will be delicious to drink in a few years and will age well for another decade or two. Drink from 2018.

Reviews & Scores

"Medium with a hint of amber. Highly complex, scented nose combines red plum, cherry, strawberry, clove, medicinal herbs and a hint of orange zest. Intensely flavored, juicy and tightly wound, with lovely cut and definition to the red fruit and spice flavors. Very concentrated, tactile wine whose firm tannic spine will require at least several years of cellaring. Finishes with terrific lift."

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.
