An Alberto Antonini project, Enamore is an Amarone-style wine, where grapes are dried appassimento style to create a concentrated, full wine. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda and Cabernet Franc are sweet and thicker on the full palate, with ripe and dried plum, dried blackberry, raspberry leather and pink florals drawn across thick, sueded and — at the end — drying tannins. Cushy, velvety, warm on the finish; think of this as a red-fruited/pink floral and lighter version of Amarone.
Deep ruby-purple in colour; spicy, cedary, vanilla-oak nose with a floral top note; medium-bodied, dry, promising more on the nose than the palate delivers; medium- to full-bodied, dry, red plum flavour with a lively acidic finish.
A nose of spicy raspberry, pepper, cherry, cedar, red liquorice and plums. It turns savoury on the palate with bold red fruits, cracked black pepper and a vibrant finish. Barbecue wine.
Impressively well-knit and balanced for such a young Tannat. Anise, tobacco, dusky blueberry fill this firm form, one lined with river stones, textured with graphite and perfumed with peonies. Love the freshness and bright acidity here. This interesting, accessible Tannat welcomes another glass, especially with grilled pork.
Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot is styled by the famous French consultant, Michel Rolland. Befitting his Bordelais stylings, this is a polished, rich red, with red and black fruit, resin, sultry cola, dark chocolate, dusky spices and a lifted, potent acidity. Tannins are supple, but sticky around the edges, reflective of its youth. This is a winemaker's wine, benefitting from a decant now, but with the structure and balance to cellar for a couple years before pouring with grilled beef.
Solid value! Plum, blackberry, blackberry, raspberry, chocolate, purple flower and menthol are layered on a full body with loads of tannin to back everything up. Excellent length with enough stuffing to age a decade, if so desired.
Pear, apple and earthy lees, with ripe pear and dried apple lining the base and grapefruit rind to brighten. Surprisingly dry and grippy, all around a thicker base of melon and citrus lees. This is a medium bodied, solid wine that is more serious than the rice and label would suggest.
