This is the 2020 “Vintage of the Century” in a nutshell. Big and bold, this wine is expressive already and has the potential to last forever. On the nose, fresh aromas of cassis, blackberry and black cherry with the addition of cedar box , pipe tobacco and wet fall leaves. The palate is rich and concentrated with the alcohol clicking at 14.5% - but there’s a freshness that makes it light footed. The tannins are up front and I expect them to soften with time, since the oak profile has already started to melt into the wine. The palate displays multiple layers starting with black fruits like blackberry and black currant, followed by ripe raspberry, tobacco leaves and dark chocolate. The finish offers a charcoal - mineral texture leading to a graphite and savoury conclusion. (CWC, 10/08/23).
