Tasting Notes Taylor's Vintage 2016:
Deep purple color with a thin magenta maple. Intense aromas of pure wild berries and fresh notes of green apple, plum and raspberry. Around the nucleus of living fruit is an intoxicating aura of stems and herbs. More in depth, exotic notes of cedar and jasmine give an extra dimension of complexity. The wine has an attractive elegance and muscularity, with vigorous and linear tannins that fuse perfectly in the palate and that support the wine with great firmness. Very vigorous for its daring acidity, it presents the intense flavors of berries at a very long end. Although the dominant notes are finesse and balance, the wine exhibits the restrained vigor and resilience that are the hallmarks of Taylor's style.
Tasting Notes Warre's Vintage 2016:
It's a typical Warre's vintage with a feminine charm, to exude floral aromas of esteva and violets. Beautiful elasticity in the mouth with flavors of ripe black fruits, trimmed by the freshness of the acidity that confers perfect balance and elegance. Long finish with notes of tea leaves.
