From Messias, tasted alongside the full blend. Cask sample. Not quite transparent at the core. Nosing of soft baked blackcurrant biscuits. Delicious entry with plenty of acidity, generous amounts of fruit and terrific tannins that together have a lovely balance. A good, chewy aftertaste and blackcurrant finish of good length. This is a much better wine than the full blend. 89-91.
Tasted 12 September 2018.
