(2012) Beautiful nose of cedar and fine cinnamon spices over very pure, fresh black berries. There is a little gamy development, but the spicy fruit comes through so powerfully. The palate has a dusty blue-black weight of fruit, good ripeness and a real sense of juiciness. Delicious stuff.
(2012) Gorgeously smoky, earthy and elegant nose, with exotic sandalwood spices too, but the cassis and blackcurrant freshness powers through in this young wine. Alluring perfume, leading on to a bold, balanced palate, with a chewy streak of tannin and acidity joining still slightly raw oak at this stage. Fantastic freshness and richness, this already delicious but needing a few years to totally integrate.
(2012) Much deeper, more earthy and more animal than the Solaia, with coffee and plum depth and a truffle and game allure. Seems really quite mature on the nose, and leading to a rich, velvet-textured and powerful palate. The sweet fruit is powerful and concentrated, with a big tannic framework.
