A full wine with smoked meat, licorice and black-fruit jam aromas. The palate is healthy, snappy and tannic, with earthy, full-blast berry flavors that veer toward sweet raisin and syrup but then pull back before falling off the cliff. Saturated, dense and raisiny, but still very rich, real and rewarding.
Light and slightly soapy smelling, with lychee notes. The palate is full and round, with warm flavors of tangerine and lychee. Finishes with heft, smooth edges and sweetness, and overall it weighs in as a heavyweight Torrontés that might hit the mat hard when it fades.
Seems like we’re catching this wine late in its cycle. It’s not very expressive on the nose, and even though there’s still life to the palate, it’s dealing only mild apple and citrus flavors followed by heat and acidic scour on the finish.
