Lovely brightness if acidity, vibrant fruit, delicate tannins; old world meets new world

Apparently the best 'Coleraine' of history? It delivered in spades for me! Complex array of dark fruits: blackberry, blackcurrant and plums. Ripe intense fruit. Complex, concentrated with hints of dried herbs and chocolate. Impeccable acidity leaves you with a refreshing mouthfIill. But what separates this wine from the rest. The length & tannins... Wow! Is this Nebbiolo? Dry tannin sensation - length well over 2 minutes. Special wine! Needs time. 95+ points.
