Taste: A minor explosion of taste! In the arrival; engine oil, tar, liquorice and camphor. On the mid palate there’s alcohol nippiness and freshly crushed black pepper. But also saltiness and a few notes reminiscent of fortified wine and fortified wine casks, like dried dark fruits and small bursts of sweetness. Takes water well but doesn’t transform significantly, if anything it gains in wood pepper. A rough and intense ride! (88p)
Finish: The finish continues with a slight alcohol nippiness, freshly crushed black pepper and some salinity. (86-88p)
Overall: Very coastal, in your face, rough and intense. And probably young. In other words; quite likeable! Total score 88 points.
