The browning rim of the wine (under DIAM) portents the development. Maturing nose: cassis and briar with earthier liqueur cherry and balsamic strawberry tones. Secondary compounds delivering roast meats and leather show the journey of the wine. The palate is still alive with bittersweet balsamic and forest floor mature flavours. Medium bodied wine with light (integrated) tannin. This borders on a darker, broodier version of Pinot Noir, and while there’s little road left to travel for this wine, it still offers unique and interesting drinking.
