Caillard Mataro 2009

In the early days of Project Mataro, this piece by Andrew Caillard MW - auctioneer, educator, writer, artist - was a great inspiration and background resource. Subsequently it was pleasing to find that Caillard puts his money where his mouth is and chooses to apply his name to the production of the variety.

Black cherry, plum, a little sandalwood. Lovely perfume to the wine - exhibiting a mix of the three. However, give this time in the decanter and its a very different proposition altogether.

Spicy, velvety, layered - waves of spice and fruit attack in relentless assaults, cascade through the palate. Fine tannin backs up the wine's profile, and each contributes to a length of focus and purity. 94 - Outstanding
