Aromas of dark berries, licorice and sandalwood following through to medium to full body with firm tannins. A juicy and delicious finish. Drink in 2019.
Black currant, blackberry, herb, mineral and tobacco notes ply this firm, intense and sinewy red. The taut profile and compact structure persist on the long finish. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2030. 3,400 cases imported.
The 2016 Promis (pronounced proh-MEESS) is a blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, and 10% Sangiovese that were fermented separately and aged in barrel, with blending occurring just a few months before bottling. It offers a juicy, charming style in its black cherry and blackberry fruits as well as outstanding notes of spice, earth, and tobacco. This elegant, medium-bodied beauty has nicely integrated acidity, ultra-fine tannins, and a silky, mid-weight yet just incredibly charming style that's ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years or so.
The 2016 Promis opens with floral aromas of wild rose and violet, then it turns into a more earthy bouquet with hints of maritime pine, eucalyptus, roots, wet stones. The palate is fresh and juicy, with notes of red and black fruits – raspberry, wild strawberry and mulberry. Creamy, smooth tannins. The final is sapid with a peculiar smoky and spicy character. With its notes of rosemary, wild fennel, embers, the 2016 Promis perfectly mirrors the Mediterranean scrubland which surrounds it.
