From the time this wine was blended and sitting in barrels, it has been the most fascinating of the four big guns of the 2020 vintage from Bella Terra (Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv and Meritage). Early on in barrel, it was tight, the tannins were aggressive, and the oak was up front, but deep down I knew this wine has something special. A delicate and elegant inside was there, like an “iron fist in a velvet glove.” Here we are now after bottling, and this wine is starting to shine, staring to deliver on its promise - and this is very exciting. On the nose, aromas of cassis, plum, black cherry, cedar, vanilla and chocolate are now more expressive and shinning throughout. The palate is softer, rounder and prettier, offering flavours of back berry, black cherry, cassis, fresh cut herbs, tobacco leaves and mocha, before the finish brings a great mix of spices and a hint of charcoal minerality. Another spectacular wine from a spectacular vintage.
