A cashmere wine indeed: soft, silky w and excellent backbone!
Ripe black fruit and a hint of v silky and v black chocolate on the nose, excellent tanin structure, great acidity and weight, lots of jammy plum, blackberry and mulberry in the middle palate, dark chocolate and a little smokiness in the lingering finish.
The wine was decanted when we tasted it and I suggest to do so when drinking it as well :-)
Tasting date : 03 Nov 2011
Maturity : Mature
Meaning on the maturity : Can be drunk now - showed beautifully when decanted - yet I would maybe age it for a little longer say 12-18 months. Think the tanins will acquire a more velvety character and the complexity will develop a little more...
