About

94

100% mataro. Dark purple. Wild, deeply pitched dark berry liqueur, olive, violet oil, licorice and Indian spices on the intensely perfumed nose. Lush and expansive, offering sweet blackberry and cherry compote flavors with suggestions of bitter chocolate and black cardamom. Really stains the palate, finishing with superb clarity, thrust and length. Dusty tannins make a late appearance but the fruit is more than up to it.
