Great aromatics that contrast between bright, perky, perty blueberry and raspberry, with roasted coffee and woody notes. It's pleasingly aromatic and inviting.
Entry shows some good bright acid with a re-emergence of the fruity notes mentioned. Medium bodied and rather slurpable, from entry through to the finish - which is moderately lengthy - showing balance and soft tannin for immediate pleasure.
Off of vines planted in 1998, the first Tempranillo vines in the Hills. I hadn't had much luck with an earlier foray into the variety. This wine is the exception to those, deserving of the honours emblazoned across its front.
