Aromas of dried eucalyptus leaves and bark sit amid red-berry and plum aromas. There are some fleshy, darker berries and spices on the palate. Needs time. Drink from 2025. Screw cap.
This was the first iconic wine that I ever tasted. I still recall parting with my pocket money with glee! This is of red fruit notes as it is of black. Yet at this nascent stage, a herbal potpourri is slathered across a carapace of oak cedars, impeccably wrought slinky tannins and dutiful acidity. A seamless sheath! The wine's pulse is forceful and the finish long, although it is far from heavy in any way. The fruit will unravel in time, yet it is not to be rushed.
