Tasting Notes

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot. On the nose an alluring perfume of new leather, sour cherry and wild mushrooms form an ethereal halo over the spiced richness of the body of the wine, steadily drawing you in. On the palate, the vibrant seam of acidity and finely grained tannins provide a chiselled framework for the rich dark berry fruit, spiced chocolate and complex earthy mineral notes, all of which linger on the finish. The wine boasts a power and energy which promises untold aromatic riches in the future, of which it is giving you just a tantalising glimpse now.

TASTING NOTES

A vivid mid-ruby, dried rose petal and balsamic scented reserva, still showing vibrant raspberry fruit and fresh acid. Chocolate-coated cherry character with hints of vanilla, but in a far more restrained way than in classic Rioja wines. Superb structure with ripe, fine-grained tannins and a tar-like grip towards the end of the long finish. Armit Wines
