„The nose immediately places it in Bordeaux. There is more than a whiff of bell pepper coupled with the cigar box of quality oak. If you manage to see beyond this quite thick smoke screen then you are rewarded by peppermint, raspberry and wild strawberries. The palate shows a deft hand and good taste: it’s balanced, finely extracted, lively with gentle, chalky tannins. It walks the fine line between gravitas and fun. The finish is slightly bitter but really persistent. Overall the 2013 La Vida is a complex and noble wine that cannot completely hide the difficulties of its vintage but I find this attitude much more preferable to inept adjustments.
If it’s true that grapes for great wines should be harvested just before full ripeness this wine has every chance of achieving greatness.”
