Description

    Kagor 1987
    South Coast, Massandra
    Bottle (6)
    Translucent but dark ruby/purple color. Nose is still super youthful but starting to hint at its next characteristics. A butterfly who has just barely snuck his head out of the cocoon. Quite dusty but retaining it's jammy red and black raspberry personality and a touch of white pepper that appears to be waning. The palate opens with that sweet red fruit and has a touch of maply syrup without being all too sweet. The spirit is more pronounced on the upper palate but the acid and spirit are mild enough as to leave this as an off-sweet red wine. It's only a baby though and I suspect as the fruit tones down that this will come into focus with the spirit providing enough backbone. The only question is, knowing how glacially these wines mature, how long does one have to wait? Doesn't really matter, this is delicious enough as to be unlikely to see it's latter years.
