Almaviva – 13/12/2011

Almaviva 2005
New world bottle development, dried cranberries, very dark carob. Great balance, nicely aged, oak still quite prominent, slightly hollow mid-palate, good earthy tar length.

Almaviva 2007
Tighter more brooding and oaky, really intense, oak totally dominates. Fruit very shy and subtle, classic cassis and leather, very ripe.

Almaviva 2009
Very dusty, slightly smoky, great harmony between fruit oak and alcohol. Great vibrancy, velvety and accessible, Freshness of fruit yet complex, beautiful and soft.
