From early tastings immediately prior to bottling through to its en primeur release in 2010 this wine has shown a very positive and continuing evolution. The colour retains its vibrant ruby and purple lights that proceed right to its edges. The nose has a distinctive perfumed lift which is underpinned by softer longiflorum lily scents, musky spice, black olive and an earthy, forest floor character. A layered nose complements the palate and its flavour profile, which displays minerality, red and black fruits, black olive, dried sage and hints of aromatic spices. The wine has a long spreading palate that is lengthy and slightly textured with a viscosity that contributes to the overall suppleness and elegance of the wine. A wine with what I perceive to have a good long future ahead of it. I recommend re-evaluating its progress in 4 years.
