Pyren Vineyard Cabernet 2016

Cabernet in a wax sealed Burgundy bottle (perhaps suggesting a little Loire styling?). Seems to be a winery that’s innovating or re-inventing itself. Regardless, impressed with their work of late.

Lovely natural tasting wine, I felt the love from the start. Blackcurrant, blackberry with a little bustle in its hedgerow, aniseed, dark chocolate, a damp earthy thing too. Medium-bodied, fat earthy silty tannin, lovely bitter dark chocolate flavour, dried rose and mint mouth-perfume, cool clear acidity, and again a thick but ripe tannin finish, some amaro in the aftertaste. Gee, I bloody like this.
