Deep ruby, purple in colour, quickly revealing inviting creamy dark berry fruit aromas. Whilst these fruit aromas show depth and intensity, they also have a vibrancy and brightness. On the palate, a smooth mouth-filling attack of layered dark plums, blackcurrant and chocolate notes is surrounded by a super fined tannin frame. This ensures a genuine sense of softness and balance to the wine as it travels through the palate with the fruit presence rolling to the back end through a veiled frame. Reasonably coiled in its youth we would expect this wine to open up further over the next few years.
'Blackstar' is a fantastic album and easily one of Bowie's finest in years. ... With a keen experimental edge and yet possessed of memorable melodies, 'blackstar' is a remarkably coherent ride and, in keeping it relatively short, David has ensured that the album never outstays its welcome and remains filler free.
