Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team Issue: 76

A nose of dark cherry, chocolate, brilliantly concentrated followed by clove, graphite and spice with hints of jasmine and creme brulee. The palate shows black cherry and dense licorice-laced black berry fruits. After 5 hours of air the palate develops more mouth-filling softness, with some elegant tannins.

Tasted at Ma(i)sonry alongside the current flight of Blackbird offerings - note that bottle had been opened the previous day and had a good bit of exposure, which I would absolutely recommend for this wine. Fabulous nose - literally spills out of the glass with (pleasant) floral notes and vanilla. Mouthfeel is sophisticated, with a palate of cocoa, caramel and burnt coffee. Structure was very impressive, with softened tannins and a very surprising finish.

Slate, raspberry, and earth on the nose. Supple tannins and good structure but still a bit tight. Hold this. Came back to this 4 days later and it was even better. The tannins and fruit had settled down, WOW. (Revised score from 92 to 94)
