Newton Forest Estate Cornerstone 2009
N: Leathery, baked and stewed black fruits; powerful oak with vanilla, toast and burning spices. A powerful fruit concentration overwhelms the senses then a rich plum note comes through.
P: Dry, spicy red and black fruit flavors, oaky with strong barrel flavors, tobacco and roasted meats, a light line of wild violets draws attention back to the fruit core. A complex, young and yet tamed wine. A powerful statement with medium+ length.
