The first glimpses of mahogany appear at this stage, suggesting an initial step to revealing its future extraordinary complexities. Again, like its sibling wines, we have a familiar roast/baked orange varietal/site stamp, with the added richness of subtle meat reduction, reminiscent of chicken fat sauce. Very enticing. Very gastronomic. This is a seriously complex wine; its clear and refined savoury stockiness suggesting anise and fennel, while the expected tannin load is about embellishing rather than overwhelming, gracefully relinquishing its command of the palate to allow the wine’s glorious flavours to remain the lasting memory.
