2016 Faithful Hound

A pronounced cassis aroma characterizes the first nose, but
this is followed by dried figs, dates and hints of clove. This
initial wave of fruit yields to a subtle forest-floor quality that
hints at a classically styled wine.
The palate entry is soft and displays a fine chalky texture. Fruit
aromas apparent on the nose follow onto the palate as fleshy
ripe flavours but find balance with an earthy, savoury
character, maintaining the wine’s poise.
A classic blend of noble red varieties, the wine displays both
serious structure and delightful fruit making it approachable
in it’s youth, but undoubtedly worthy of cellaring, where it
will gain further dimension with age.
