I believe that this is the fourth release of this wine, and the additional time in bottle has added to the wine’s impact. Nicely structured in a riserva-style, the oak presence that is starting to integrate well. More than medium-depth red in colour, with garnet showing on the rim, there is some pleasant leathery and black olive evolution, complementing a core of sour cherry and blackberry fruit, underpinned by a light resin and spice. Firm acidity balances the fine, resolving tannins that still coat the mouth, while the fruit on the palate take on a slight cough syrup liqueured note too. With surprising complexity for a riserva at this price level, this is a very good value indeed. • Tasted 2017-11-25 • LCBO id#216309 • Find it at your nearest LCBOMARK ANTHONY BRANDS (Agent)
