Olive Tapenade and tomato leaf meet balsamic strawberries and raspberry
coulis. The more fruit-forward elements make way for green peppercorn and with
time and development in the glass, crushed rose petals dusted in white pepper
shine through along with meadow hay and some tar.
There’s an ethereal quality on the palate, which makes it very gluggable; but
this is deceptive as this wine has serious structure; like a silk glove over an
iron fist. It is less about fruit expression and more about how the tannin
structure feels rolling around in the mouth – a juxtaposition of power and
presence, while also being delicate and ever-so-drinkable.
