Cellaring:

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Peak drinking 2022 – 2038.

Nose:

Initially, plummy fruits meshed with sweet spices (predominantly cinnamon), almond. And then a pause to imbibe the aromatic atmospherics of a patisserie: Crème anglaise, cannoli with vanilla custard ... and classic bourbon vanilla at that! A croquembouche’s (profiterole) hazelnut brittle. Grated chocolate – both white and dark. Fresh, awakening.

Palate:

Medium-bodied. Raspberry/chocolate flavours with a sprinkling of spice and cola. Symptoms: Fleshy, and an almost glycerolic texture; bulbous/expansive palate profile. Diagnosis: Tannins – integrated/embedded – supportive, not standing apart. Oak – no obtrusive flavours to speak of ... yet all the benefits of a calm maturation is seasoned hogsheads. Acidity – in tune with the wine’s weight and structure. Cure: Rest in bottle for a year or two. Needs time.
