Tasting Notes

Full, bright crimson-purple; one or two Maurice O'Shea releases since '87 have lacked drive and/or complexity, this is on the far extreme of high quality, pulsating with opulent, yet perfectly balanced and detailed red and black fruits; the silk and satin mouthfeel reflects the fruit on the one hand, a fine web of ripe tannins and grainy acidity on the other.
