Deep black-red, colour-dense to the rim.
The 2013 Somni needs air, air, air. So in the decanter then the aromas pour forth, lots of cassis, cassis liqueur, warm blueberry pie, elderberry syrup, pomegranate and dark cherries dipped in chocolate. Before the fruit and sweet flavors take over, fresh herbal notes of bay, rosemary and wild sage join in, along with a freshly infused roibos tea. Dark tobacco, charcoal and wood smoke do not deny the intense previous barrel aging, but the immense fruit richness and power of this wine tie that influence in beautifully.
The 2013 Somni caresses the tongue with its juicy fruit and seems even more accessible on the palate than on the nose. The fruit sweetness is joined by freshly brewed mocha, fine dark chocolate, leaves and truffles. The drinkability is more than pleasant, the finish mineral and stimulating. One would like to dive into this elixir and no longer emerge, power paired with finesse and a mad fruit!
