Dirt Candy The Little Circus 2018

A fruit salad of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Tempranillo, Touriga and some Traminer skins. Woah, I'm pleased I took a breath before all that. There's definitely plenty going on, that's for sure. Time at the blending bench would have been fun as the end result is pretty good.

Expressive aromas capture my attention straight up. I wasn't sure what to expect to be honest but this was a lovely surprise. Think roses, rose water and purple flowers. It moves through the mouth with great width. Drying and puckering, baked blueberries, dark plums and soft spices the main players. Sooty tannins suck moisture from the mouth with a length that just doesn't want to let go. Pizza and pasta the go for sure.

Drink now to five years.
