Old world style, showcasing a ruby core moving to a pinkish-purple outer rim. Initial aromas are of high-toned red fruit: wild young strawberries, just-picked raspberries and cherries yield to a second, more brooding layer of black currant and plums. Through the lifted floral expression of violets, damson and lilacs, an earth-driven bouquet emerges, showing iron, clay, and a loamyvolcanic ash. Seamless in its structural integrity, Cenyth isan expansive, silky expression of tannins that will age gracefully for the next 10-15 years.
The 2014 is a beauty, with plenty of finesse, forest floor, floral blueberry notes, silky tannins, medium to full body, high energy, a vibrant mouthfeel, and a long crisp finish with loads of blue and black fruits. It should drink nicely for 15 or more years.
