Aromas of ripe raspberry, damon plum compote, candle wax and polished exotic wood, red lipstick, dark chocolate, Turkish delight and violets. A flavour invasion of cherry, cranberry, spice and rose petals. The tannins are like a skeleton holding the flavour together before sneaking back to the front of the palate and starting all over again. Reminiscent of young Nebbiolo.
"Slurpy, soft, round and ripe red wine with dark cherry, plummy fruit, clove and cinnamon spice characters and some dark chocolate to finish. Feels warm for grenache, a spicy, breathy hit of the variety with a sheet of flat tannin doing some chewiness for us all. Brooding expression, done ok." 93Pts, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
