Gemtree Obsidian 2013

Rich, powerful and generous. I could go swimming in this. Only the top 1% of production makes the grade for this Gemtree flagship.

At first look Caramello Koala of all things popped into my head. The caramel bit wandered off but more time in the glass kept the chocolate character rolling on only to develop some coffee like oak.

Dark fruits drive the bus here. Fragrant violets present a pretty perfume. Everything is channeled with precision with black fruits washing around effortlessly. Supple finely grained tannins to finish.

A piece of work well worth adoring.

Cellar as long as you want. A keeper deluxe.

Excellent.
