Sensory profile The initial visual impression is of impressive forcefulness and weight, with the intense ruby red on the rim presaging for the taster the wine’s intrinsic nobility. Likewise, the initial sensory impression from the nose is a dense suite of precious spices, and of both syrupped and liqueured wild red berryfruit. A moment of breathing in the glass brings to the fore elegant impressions and dense “legs” that summon up the finest Sherries, as well as raspberry and blackcurrant preserves, clove, peppercorn, vanilla, and black liquorice. On entry, it is immediately explosive, unleashing an alcohol-warm embrace whose impact is then softened by a suite of elegant tannins. The mid- palate, however, seeks a lower threshold, bringing with it aromatic impressions of dried plums and cherry; the dry, sweetish chewiness walnuts; and the puckery minerality of wild liquorice root. Its long, lean finish, pleasantly bitterish, conjures up the appealing experience of fine high-cocoa chocolate.


Pairings It pairs impressively with foods that are equally-intense, elegant, and complex, such as dishes featuring stuffed or grilled meats.
