When you open a Nota Bene, you know it’s going to be a good night. The 2020 is big and powerful, yet it’s elegant and very complex. This is the first Cab Franc dominant Nota Bene, and it’s another blockbuster from Black Hills, with tremendous concentration, length and elegance. Lively, fresh, feisty…and you just can’t put the glass down. The nose offers aromas of violets, slight herbaciousness, dark fruits like black berry and black currant, pencil shavings and cedar box. The front palate is loaded with dark fruits and vanilla while the mid-palate brings savouriness and an absolute explosion that pops with flavours of dark cherry, blackberry, dark plum, blueberry and ripe raspberry. The back-end of this wine is absolutely spectacular and brings waves of licorice with forest floor undertones, fresh tobacco leaves, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon. The tannins need time here, but if you like young energetic reds, go for it now. Decanting is highly recommended. (CWC, 17/10/22).
