Cirsion 2009 Bodegas Roda
€ 180,29 (in Vat)
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
The 2009 Cirsion is matured for eight months in 100% French oak and that continues to drive the aromatic profile, although underneath lie intense black fruit with small dark cherries and creme de cassis. The palate is full-bodied with a firm grip. It is very oaky and tannic at the moment, very demonstrative with huge grip and layers of oaky dark berries mixed with allspice and tar that dovetails into an more elegant blackberry pastille and cassis-tinged finish. This behemoth needs several years in bottle. Drink 2018-2025.

Delivering both power and grace, this red is dense, yet remains lithe and balanced, with expressive blackberry and wild plum fruit backed by plenty of toasty oak, accented with licorice, floral and spice notes that linger on the finish. Tempranillo. Drink now through 2020. 725 cases made. –TM
