The palate is dry with softly ripe, velvety tannins, slightly high alcohol and intense flavours of Damson, liquorice and soy sauce with fig, brandied cherries and rosemary. There is a salinity about it emphasizing its strong minerality.
With its medium finish but slightly high alcohol, this is a WSET Very Good wine. The second day, it was even better than the first time around. Don’t be afraid to have leftovers.
Purchased by Charlotte, it was a beautiful accompaniment to Winesnob’s dry ribs and porcini mushroom laced risotto.
