The end result is a wine of density, elegance and refinement. The nose draws you in with aromas of blackcurrant, dark cherry, black plum, earthiness and cedar. The palate refined and restrained, follows with superb structure and near seamless oak integration offering complexity along with beautiful fruit purity and supple tannins, before coming to a close with a long lingering yet youthful finish.
It is a beautiful wine, perhaps made even more so by the comparative tasting on the launch day of the 2006 and 2014 vintages, which not only showed spectacularly in their own right but demonstrated the track record and remarkable age-ability of Paul Sauer, offering but the slightest of glimpses as to the full potential of this already impressive new release.
