Consortium

5.00 out of 5

£30.00

Classic Napa Cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry liqueur, fresh boysenberry and black cherry are infused with notes of violets, coffee, fresh leather, tobacco and the ideal touch of vanilla bean and baking spices. The oak aromas impart just the right nuances and are perfectly integrated and balanced without being overbearing (as many Napa examples can be).

On the palate, the wine is medium-plus in body and captures pitch-perfect balance with the ideal freshness, soft, silky texture and polished integrated tannins that are wrapped around layered flavors of soft black fruit, leather, tobacco, cedar, cocoa and subtle exotic spices. It is drinking fabulously now, but its peak should lie in the next 3-4 years, although this beautifully structured wine could even surpass a decade in the cellar if kept well!
