Cepas from ourselves

[bierzo]Dominio de Tares 2001 Bierzo “Cepas Viejas” (Northwest Spain) – Graphite and the darkest black dust (fruit? earth? coal? hard to tell). Strong but not strident, with the sweet scent of wood in the majority but not overpowering. While this will certainly last longer, I don’t know enough about it to judge whether or not the fruit – such as it is – will make a comeback; my guess is that it won’t, but I can’t say for sure.
