Fable Mountain Vineyards Night Sky 2012 (4.4/5)

Tasting Notes: 

It appears deep purple with very good legs. 

On the nose it's clean offering, with medium+ intensity, notes of dark damsons, cherries and violets, balsamic hints from well integrated oak and hints of herbs de Provence. Very vibrant, fresh and layered.

On the palate is dry, with balanced med+ acidity, good and fine tannin structure (these two months of post-fermentation maceration must make the magic in complexing and polymerising the tannic matrix), med+ alcohol, med+ body with sheer concentration on the mid palate and an inner tension that makes me forecast a great evolution and good longevity for this this wine. Med+ finish.

Very Good quality, Approachable Now but will improve, Premium Price. Syrah 60%, Grenache 25%, Mourvedre 15%, Tulbagh, Coastal Region, South Africa.
