2016 Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles Barossa Valley Australia
This vintage takes its time delivering the goods. At first it’s reductive, with odd stalky notes and a flat palate. But give this time in decanter or glass and it morphs into a sleek and elegant wine, full of blueberries, florals and pepper. Slightly showy vanillin and mocha oak are there too, and as the wine knits together, a baseline of earthy spices like cumin makes itself known. The palate is equally spiced, with toned muscular tannins and dried herbs etched into the finish. Drink now.

Some smoky nuances with an array of raspberry, blueberry and blackberry aromas and flavors in a deliciously fleshy style. A blend of grenache, mataro and shiraz.
