Maverick Rubeus 2018
Deep ruby red with good depth and intensity, the nose has a nice toasty note from the 18 months in French and Hungarian Barriques (225L oak barrels). Cherry chocolate cake and some grenadine notes give way to a touch of spice in vanilla and cinnamon. The Syrah gives a savory note of soy and almost a tamarind like note. the palate is muscular but approachable in its youth, with blueberry jam, black currants, cola berry and licorice. Lingering in the finish are more sweet berry fruits, baking spices and warming sensation from the fine tannins.
