A clear mahogany core with deep tawny rim. There is an engaging clarity on the nose with scents of cloves, dark honey, creme brulee, walnuts and Asian spice. Good definition and vigour. The palate is medium-bodied, very smooth on the entry with a vivacious peppery middle. Superb concentration with a viscous texture, nice build towards a clove tinged finish but lingers wonderfully long after the wine has gone. This is a great Noval although it does oxidize after 20 minutes in the glass. Tasted May 2009.
