So dense and concentrated it pools in the glass. Aromas of caramelised sugar, dried plums and prunes emerge with lashings of clove and nutmeg spice and woodsmoke. Already there is a touch of shiitake mushroom development in the background. On the palate the power is jaw-dropping with statuesque poise and structure that will ensure decades of life. Velvety finish. Fantastic.
Reviews & Scores
A decadent nose of treacle tart, chocolate, tar, tons of black fruit such as blackberries and mulberries and even ash and liquorice. A dense, layered mouthfeel makes for a full-bodied palate that's explosive yet somehow so refined and pretty all at the same time. The finish goes on and on. Incredible now, but better to wait for this giant to settle well into 2020.
