2020 Ochota Barrels From The North
Notes from Taras Ochota.
Licorice, Russian caravan tea, black forest cake and medicinal spice ooze from the glass. The exotic black cherry, Moroccan wisp and deep earthy undergrowth has a voluptuous dark aura that seduces one into a haze. On that… Ever been punched in the mouth? Well, that ferris blood flavour also seems to sneak in on the palate - bizarre but nicely complex in a freaky way. The palate is long, lithe and richly winds into a sheen of finely tuned tannins that flow across the palate like being wrapped in a warm opiate soaked velvet blanket.
