The Liberator 2009 Episode 3 – The Bandolier (4.5/5)
Homage to Bandol by Richard Kelley from his successful South African Liberator series. Deep impenetrable purple with very good viscosity. On the nose it's clean offering medium+ intensity of little black and blue fruit, nice meat/animal notes, herbs and multi-color spices. On the palate is dry with balanced med acidity, lots of tannins but without edges, high (but very well mimetized) alcohol, med+/full body with very excellent mid palate and good flavor intensity. Med+ finish.
Very Good quality, Drink Now or hold up to 10+ years. Med Price, this is a bargain and will be interesting to see how it evolves in cellar. 50-50 Mourvedre-Syrah. W.O. Stellenbosch, South-AfricaNice label :-) !
