I have tasted this wine on three different occasions over the last two years, and right now it’s by far the best expression, with a noticeable improvement from last year. The development of this wine is heading to ‘rock star’ level over time. This unique GSM blend including 40% Grenache brings aromas of dark chocolate, ripe red cherry, savoury notes and meatiness. The palate opens with generous fruit and offers satin-like tannins, providing an incredible texture that I have rarely experienced in a wine (perhaps with the 2014 Spadefoot Toad Syrah). The mid palate has a great weight, which is a pre-amble to the complexity of the finish. The five years of aging have brought a hint of forest floor, cloves, and leather on the finish, well-blended with the natural spice of this wine. A slight BBQ grilled smokiness also compliment this beautiful and unique wine. (CWC, 07/10/22). 213 cases produced.
